A comparison of lipoprotein associated phospholipase A2 and high sensitive C-reactive protein levels between diabetic and non-diabetic patients with coronary artery disease

Das Saswati , Gupta SK , MP Girish , Ray PC

Background: Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (LpPLA2) is known as an emerging marker of coronary artery disease (CAD). However its role and levels have not been documented clearly in diabetic patients with CAD in Indians. The aim of this study was to explore the association of LpplA2 levels between diabetic and non-diabetic patients with CAD and compare it with other established markers like hs-CRP.Methods: Sixty individuals with angiographically ...
