Serum Ferritin Relates to Carotid Intima-Media Thickness in Offspring of Fathers With Higher Serum Ferritin LevelsSignificance
Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology
Objective-Body iron status has been linked to atherosclerosis in adults. The purposes of our study were to determine (1) the association between circulating ferritin levels and carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) in a cohort of apparently healthy children and (2) the association between cIMT and parental ferritin levels. Approach and Results-Circulating ferritin levels (microparticle enzyme immunoassay), metabolic parameters, and cIMT (ultrasonography) were analyzed cross-sectionally in adoi:10.1161/atvbaha.115.306396 pmid:26586658 fatcat:fwn6asqm5rgsfahosawp557fjq
