OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the relationship between plasma apoA-IV levels and coronary atherosclerosis and to explore its relation to other risk factors.
METHODS: Using ELISA techniques, plasma apoA-IV levels were quantified in 181 patients who underwent coronary angiography (CAG). Patients were divided according to their coronary status into a coronary heart disease (CHD) group (stenotic lesion on CAG, n = 118) and a control group (normal CAG, n = 63). The severity of atherosclerosis was assessed by stenosis scoring of the different lesions. Other parameters, including apoA-I, apoB, Lp(a), HDL-C, LDL-C, TG, and TC, were measured as well. Univariate, logistic regression analyses were used to define the relationship between coronary atherosclerosis and plasma apoA-IV levels.
RESULTS: When compared with the control group, plasma apoA-IV levels were found to be lower in the CHD group. There was a weak negative correlation between plasma apoA-IV levels and the severity of coronary atherosclerosis. ApoA-IV was found to be a relatively independent risk factor for CHD. We also found a positive correlation between apoA-IV and triglyceride levels.
CONCLUSIONS: ApoA-IV may be important in the prediction of CHD and coronary atherosclerosis severity. It may also play an important role in the metabolism of triglycerides.
