Introduction Fatty acid-binding protein (FABP) is an independent predictor of cardiac events. However, the relation between increasing FABP and coronary atherosclerosis is unknown. We have investigated the relation between FABP and angiographic properties of coronary atherosclerosis in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
