The present project is aimed at determining the prevalence of LDL-C <130 mg/dl with hsCRP ≥2mg/l, and of HDL-C < 40 mg/dl in Spain together with the estimation of cardiovascular risk, to analyze the contribution of measuring hsCRP for primary prevention purposes. In a subgroup of that population a number of inflammatory and oxidative status biomarkers would be also measured to better understand the meaning of elevated hsCRP.The study aim to analyze data already collected in studies (11 studies will participate) carried out in Spain, in 10 Spanish regions, after the year 2000.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Lipid fractions: high-density lipoprotein, low-density lipoprotein, and total cholesterol, and triglycerides, and dislipidemia treatments [ Time Frame: retrospectively ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • High sensitivity C reactive protein & CHR risk by Framingham adapted functions [ Time Frame: retrospectively ]
  • Lipid profile among the Spanish regions, as in the primary outcome variable [ Time Frame: retrospectively ]
  • Biomarkers: Interleukines 6 and 10, oxidized LDL, VCAM, ICAM, TNF alpha, neopterin, fibrinogen, lp(a), MMP 9 Apo A, Apo B, adiponectin, leptin, resistin, and yet other [ Time Frame: prospectively ]

Biospecimen Retention:   None Retained
No samples will be obtained, but biomarkers will be analysed from frozen serum samples retained by the pervious studies performed.
