Abstract: Many new cardiovascular biomarkers of atherosclerosis have recently been emerging. However, there is a paucity of these data in the Thai population. This study aims to determine the prevalence of these biomarkers of atherosclerosis and the relationship between these new risk factors and other conventional risk factors for atherosclerosis in the healthy Thai population. As a yearly check-up program, we surveyed 3,615 normal healthy populations for their conventional risk factors and some new cardiovascular biomarkers for atherosclerosis. The authors found hyperhomocysteinemia and high level of Lp(a) in 27 per cent and 32 per cent of the cases respectively. Prevalence of recent and past chlamydial infection was found in 30 per cent and 51 per cent respectively.
