ABSTRACT
The article offers information on cardiovascular disease (CVD) and lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) in the U.S. Cardiovascular disease was the contributing cause of death in 58% of all American deaths in 2003. Research has focused on whether markers of inflammation can aid the prediction of CVD. The role of Lp-PLA2 is still unclear.
