Abstract

Serum total sialic acid (S-TSA) is a recently identified risk marker for atherosclerosis and cardiovascular mortality. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of three sialic acid rich glycoproteins (orosomucoid, haptoglobin, and alpha1-antitrypsin) on the relationship between S-TSA and carotid atherosclerosis. The mean S-TSA was 0.045 g/l higher among cases than controls (P
