- Betaine as a determinant of postmethionine load total plasma homocysteine before and after B-vitamin supplementationPal I Holm
LOCUS for Homocysteine and Related Vitamins, University of Bergen, N 5021 Bergen, Norway
Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol 24:301-7. 2004..Betaine is a substrate in the betaine-homocysteine methyltransferase reaction, converting homocysteine to methionine. There are only sparse data on plasma betaine as a determinant of the plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) concentration...
- Mortality and cardiovascular events in patients treated with homocysteine-lowering B vitamins after coronary angiography: a randomized controlled trialMarta Ebbing

Institute of Medicine, University of Bergen, 5021 Bergen, Norway
Atherosclerosis 212:644-9. 2010..Circulating OPG levels are elevated in cardiovascular disease (CVD). We assessed serum OPG as predictor of long-term prognosis in patients with suspected stable angina pectoris (SAP) undergoing elective coronary angiography...
