- •Atherosclerosis is a complex phenomenon manifesting several features typical of chronic inflammation and disorders of lipid metabolism.
- •This study evaluates the association of inflammatory markers and specialized lipoprotein particles with incident coronary artery calcium (CAC) development and CAC progression over time.
- •Inflammatory markers and specialized lipoprotein particles were associated with CAC incidence and progression in minimally adjusted models, but not after adjustment for traditional risk factors.
- •Traditional risk factors were strongly associated with both CAC incidence and progression with the exception of cholesterol parameters not associated with CAC progression in adjusted model.
