History of Emerging Vascular Disease Risk Factors

JAMA. 2004;292(17):2086. doi:10.1001/jama.292.17.2086-b

To the Editor: The review of emerging risk factors for atherosclerotic vascular disease by Drs Hackam and Anand,1 while describing recent evidence quite well, illustrates one of the pitfalls of limiting literature searches to relatively recent years. Had they expanded their search to earlier years, they might have noted articles describing the discovery of and providing insight into biochemical mechanisms of processes they reviewed.
