Objective High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels are inversely related to the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD). Alterations in HDL-C subclass distribution and HDL-associated enzyme activities may be more important than total HDL levels for the progression of CAD. We intended to investigate the relationship of HDL-C subclass distribution and HDL-associated enzyme activities with CAD.
