Novel risk factors for Coronary Artery Disease.
J Postgrad Med Inst Jan ;15(1):3-15.

Coronary artery disease remains the major killer in spite of all the progress in treatment and prevention. Continuous research and interest in understanding the patho-physiology of CAD led to the discovery of the novel risk factors for coronary artery disease. Their relation to CAD is complex and their quantitative and independent contribution to risk is not well defined. Frequency in the population may be too low to add significant independent risk for the entire population but they could be important causes of CAD in individual patients. Their role in evaluation and management of patients at risk deserves some consideration. This is an Editorial.
