Abstract

Serum total lipids and lipoproteins cholesterol were determined in 33 survivors of myocardial infarction (MI) and in 75 subjects with peripheral vascular disease (PVD). Measurements were also made by a quantitative immunological assay of Apoprotein A (Apo A) and B (Apo B). Apo A levels were significantly lower in cases than in controls. In those cases with low levels of Apo A, high density lipoprotein has a higher cholesterol content as compared with controls. A negative correlation between high density lipoprotein cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol was found in controls and PVD subjects. The findings suggest that Apo A is associated to MI and PVD and its quantitative determination is predictive of cardiovascular disease.
