The individual roles of cholesterol pathway biomarkers (CPB) and hemostasis inhibitors with neuroimaging outcomes were previously investigated in multiple sclerosis (MS). The purpose of this extension study was to investigate potential crosstalk between plasma CPB [total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and apolipoproteins (Apo) ApoA-I, ApoAII, ApoB, ApoC-II and ApoE] and hemostasis inhibitors [heparin cofactor-II (HCII), protein C (PC), protein S (PS), thrombomodulin, ADAMTS13 and PAI-1] in a cohort of 127 MS patients, and 40 healthy individuals (HI). The associations were assessed with regressions. In MS patients, HCII was positively associated with TC, LDL-C, HDL-C and ApoA-I (p=0.028, 0.027, 0.002 and 0.027, respectively) but negatively associated with ApoCII (p=0.018). PC was positively associated with ApoC-II (p=0.001) and ApoB (p=0.016) whereas PS was associated with TC (p=0.024) and ApoE (p=0.003) in MS. The ApoC-II associations were not observed in HI. The negative association between ApoC-II and HCll was an exception amongst other positive associations between CPB and hemostasis inhibitors in MS.

Abstract

The individual roles of cholesterol pathway biomarkers (CPB) and hemostasis inhibitors with neuroimaging outcomes were previously investigated in multiple sclerosis (MS). The purpose of this extension study was to investigate potential crosstalk between plasma CPB [total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and apolipoproteins (Apo) ApoA-I, ApoAII, ApoB, ApoC-II and ApoE] and hemostasis inhibitors [heparin cofactor-II (HCII), protein C (PC), protein S (PS), thrombomodulin, ADAMTS13 and PAI-1] in a cohort of 127 MS patients, and 40 healthy individuals (HI). The associations were assessed with regressions. In MS patients, HCII was positively associated with TC, LDL-C, HDL-C and ApoA-I (p=0.028, 0.027, 0.002 and 0.027, respectively) but negatively associated with ApoCII (p=0.018). PC was positively associated with ApoC-II (p=0.001) and ApoB (p=0.016) whereas PS was associated with TC (p=0.024) and ApoE (p=0.003) in MS. The ApoC-II associations were not observed in HI. The negative association between ApoC-II and HCll was an exception amongst other positive associations between CPB and hemostasis inhibitors in MS. CPB do not modulate the PC associations with neurodegeneration in MS.
