The section comments on the article "Relative Value of Multiple Plasma Biomarkers as Risk Factors for Coronary Artery Disease and Death in an Angiography Cohort," by Kenny W. J. Lee, et al, which appeared in the 2006 issue of the "Canadian Medical Association Journal." The strong points and weaknesses of the article are identified.

    Atherosclerosis, and its most common manifestation, coronary artery disease (CAD), are rather common causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Recognition of its various risk factors is important to planning effective preventive measures. After the homocysteine theory was presented in 1969,...

    Background/aim: Dyslipidemia is one of the most important risk factors for coronary artery disease (CAD), and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is used to measure dyslipidemia. Non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C) seems to be an alternative parameter to LDL-C as it is...
