Abstract

Autoantibodies against apolipoprotein A-I (anti-apoA-I IgGs) are prevalent in atherosclerosis-related conditions. It remains elusive whether they improve the prognostic accuracy of the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) score 2.0 (GS) in acute coronary syndromes (ACS). In this prospective multicenter registry, 1713 ACS patients were included and followed for 1 year. The primary endpoint (major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE)) was defined as the composite of myocardial infarction, stroke (including transient ischemic attack), or cardiovascular (CV) death with individual events independently adjudicated. Plasma levels of anti-apoA-I IgGs upon study inclusion were assessed using ELISA. The association between anti-apoA-I IgGs and incident MACE was assessed using Cox models with splines and C-statistics. One-year MACE incidence was 8.4% (144/1713). Anti-apoA-I IgG levels were associated with MACE with a non-linear relationship (p = 0.01), which remained unchanged after adjusting for the GS (p = 0.04). The hazard increased progressively across the two first anti-apoA-I IgG quartiles before decreasing thereafter. Anti-apoA-I IgGs marginally improved the prognostic accuracy of the GS (c-statistics increased from 0.68 to 0.70). In this multicenter study, anti-apoA-I IgGs were predictive of incident MACE in ACS independently of the GS but in a nonlinear manner. The practical implications of these findings remain to be defined.
