  1. Plama fibrinogen : levels and correlates in young adults.

    Article - En anglais

    Sufficient evidence exists that plasma fibrinogen is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease to prompt a search for fibrinogen determinants.

    The authors measured fibrinogen in 4,193 participants in the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) Study with three objectives: to describe fibrinogen levels in young adults, to determine if correlates of fibrinogen in older adults apply to younger adults, and to examine several additional hypothesized correlates.

    Fibrinogen (overall mean+-standard deviation=263+-57 mg/dl) was greater in women than in men and in blacks than in whites; it was associated positively with cigarette smoking, body mass index, low density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure, and negatively with physical activity, high density lipoprotein cholesterol, and ethanol intake.
