  1. We detected 491 proteins in these plasma samples with a false discovery rate of less than 1%. After exclusion of plasma proteins that were significantly changed in the control group (those who underwent diagnostic angiography only), we identified six plasma proteins that were significantly elevated (P < 0.05) at 5 min after plaque disruption. These were cross referenced against the plaque protein library determined from plaque debris. Five of these proteins were also present in plaque debris
