Objective - It has been shown that the main apolipoprotein of HDL, Apo A-1, is subjected to nitration by myeloperoxidase (MPO) and this oxidative modification renders HDL proatherogenic. The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between plasma MPO levels, and the severity of coronary artery disease.
