Abstract

A group of 100 totally or subtotally myeloperoxidase (MPO)-deficient individuals was compared to a reference population of 118 probands selected at random. Data for a protective effect of the deficiency against cardiovascular damage are presented. On the other hand, a significantly higher occurrence of severe infections and chronic inflammatory processes was noted among the deficient patients. An increased incidence of cancer among the MPO-deficient individuals was not demonstrated.
