Abstract

A strong, almost perfectly predictive association between apolipoprotein A-I levels and the presence of obstructive coronary-artery disease is reported by a Mayo Clinic group in this issue.1 The report induces love at first sight, but quick romance does not a marriage make. The finding, and how it was achieved, raises important questions. First of all, is the association real and causal — what can be inferred from a cross-sectional, descriptive analysis of a case series? Is the closer correlation found between coronary-artery disease and apolipoprotein A-I than between the disease and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or low-density lipoprotein (LDL) due to.
