Abstract

We compared serum lipid and apolipoprotein predictors of atherosclerosis in cases from the multicenter study, Pathobiological Determinants of Atherosclerosis in Youth (PDAY). The lipid measures included HDL cholesterol (HDL-C) and non-HDL-C, and the apolipoprotein measures included concentrations of apoA1, apoB, and Lp(a), and sizes of the apo(a) proteins. We tested whether the apolipoprotein measures predicted atherosclerotic lesions as well as the more traditional lipid measures. We estimated extent of lesions as fatty streaks or raised lesions (fibrous plaques, complicated or calcified lesions) in 3 sites: thoracic aorta, abdominal aorta, and right coronary artery. Neither apoA1 nor apoB measures were as strongly or consistently correlated with extent of lesions as the corresponding lipid measure (HDL-C and non-HDL-C, respectively). Beyond the basic model that included sex, age, race, smoking status, hypertension, and the lipid measures, apoA1 and apoB added only an average 1.3% increased explanatory ability to the model, whereas HDL-C plus non-HDL-C added an average 2.5%. The results suggest that the traditional lipid measures are more useful than apolipoprotein measures for detecting young persons at high risk of precociou...Continue Reading

Atherosclerosis Disease Progression

Atherosclerosis is the buildup of plaque on artery walls, causing stenosis which can eventually lead to clinically apparent cardiovascular disease. Find the latest research on atherosclerosis disease progression here.
