Panagiota Drivelegka conducted a study to understand the association between the concentration of serum urate and subclinical atherosclerosis as per the coronary artery calcification score, common carotid intima-media thickness, carotid plaque score. The researchers concluded that biological effects of serum urate differ in men and women or more so it has a varying effect on different vascular beds or during the different stages of the atherosclerotic processes.
