Contrary to public perception, smoking-caused heart disease actually results in more deaths per year than smoking-caused lung cancer (1). Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2 or PLAC) testing is an enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative determination of Lp-PLA2 in plasma; used in conjunction with clinical evaluation and individual risk assessment as a suggested aid in predicting risk for coronary heart disease (CHD).

It is not widely appreciated that CVD is the main cause of premature death in women: CVD was responsible for 42% of all deaths below 75 years of age in European women and for 38% of all deaths at <75 years in men. 14 However, a decline in age-standardized CHD and CVD mortality has been observed in many European countries between the 1970s and 1990s, with the earliest and most prominent decrease in the more affluent countries, illustrating the potential for prevention of premature deaths and for prolonging healthy life expectancy.

The investigators did not find significant differences in the numbers of deaths attributed to vascular causes (vitamins, 578 [9.6 %], versus placebo, 559 [9.3 %]) or non-vascular causes (vitamins, 405 [6.7 %], versus placebo, 392 [6.5 %]). Even if you've had a heart attack, you'll benefit from quitting—estimates suggest that a woman's risk of having a second heart attack is cut by 50 percent or more after she stops smoking.

It is dosed to effect at 1.25–5 mg/dog (not per kg), PO, tid, and 0.625 mg/cat, PO, bid. We further assessed changes over time in those same variables using a repeated-measure analysis of variance model up to 3 years after randomization. These years of life lost per radiation-induced death figures are substantially lower than the corresponding ones for solid cancers (13.8–14.4 years) and leukemia (19.8–31.6 years; Table 4 ), reflecting the fact that circulatory disease mortality tends to occur later in life.
