In the present study, the associations between the plasma concentration of soluble CD44 (sCD44), sex, cardiovascular risk factors, and ultrasound-assessed measures of carotid atherosclerosis were examined in 2 groups of 61- and 64-year-old men and women from population-based samples. Women had higher levels of circulating sCD44 than men. There were no associations between sCD44 and cardiovascular risk factors or subclinical atherosclerosis.
