Abstract: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of death both in Sweden and globally. Atherosclerotic vascular changes are considered the major underlying pathology leading to clinical manifestations of CVD, e.g. myocardial infarction and stroke. Hyperlipidemia and chronic subclinical inflammation have been identified as major pathophysiological mechanisms driving atherosclerosis, which is a life-long vascular disease. Inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are known to be assoc... more
