Our findings show inverse PON1 activity-carotid atherosclerosis and -cerebral arteriosclerosis association in stroke patients: the lower the PON1 activity the more progressed is the atherosclerotic process and the weaker is the association with AChE activity. Extending previous PON1 genetic studies in stroke populations, our study emphasizes the PON1 activity as a potential anti-atherogenic element and proposes involvement of cholinesterase activities in its effects.
