Summary, in English

Autoimmune responses against oxidized-LDL (oxLDL) have been suggested to modulate inflammation in atherosclerosis. Previous studies showed an association between autoantibodies against the apolipoprotein B (apoB) p210 antigen and a lower risk of cardiovascular (CV) events. In the present study we investigated if autoantibodies against p210 at the time of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) predict risk for future CV events.
