Serum glycoproteins A and B assessed by 1H-NMR in familial hypercholesterolemia

Abstract Background and aims: Inflammation is a pathophysiological mechanism of atherosclerosis, and several mediators have been proposed as biomarkers. Acute-phase serum glycoproteins are upregulated in the liver during systemic inflammation. Because of their unique biochemical characteristics, they can be measured by 1H-NMR, and their role as subclinical inflammation markers is under clinical evaluation. We aimed to assess […]
