Objective: Familial combined hyperlipidemia (FCH) is the most common familial hyperlipidemia with a high risk of the early atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to compare levels of s-ICAM-1 and s-VCAM-1 in asymptomatic members of FCH families with healthy controls and to find out relation between s-ICAM-1, respective s-VCAM-1, and risk factors accompanying FCH. We also investigate association between adhesion molecules and intima-media thickness of common carotid artery ...
