Abstract

Platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase activity in plasma was compared between 72 subjects with angiographically normal coronary arteries and matched controls with clinically significant obstruction. No difference was seen, and we conclude that variation in plasma platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase activity is not a risk factor for coronary artery disease.
