Abstract Previous studies suggested that the lectin-complement pathway plays a complex role in cardiovascular disease (CVD). To date, no prospective human studies have investigated the relationship between the initiating factor of the lectin pathway, that is, mannose-binding lectin (MBL), and low-grade inflammation, endothelial dysfunction, or carotid intima–media thickness (cIMT). Moreover, MBL-associated proteases (MASPs) and MBL-associated proteins (MAps), which mediate downstream complement activation, have not been studied in the development of CVD.
