Abstract

Objective: Brachial artery intima-media thickness (B-IMT), paraoxonase (PUN) and arylesterase (ARE) are accepted as markers of atherosclerosis. In this study, we aimed to determine the importance of B-IMT, PUN and ARE in four patient groups who are expected to have increased risk of atherosclerosis without vascular complications.
