Data on the association of serum glypican-4 with future major adverse cardiovascular events and mortality in patients undergoing coronary angiography

This data article is associated to the research article titled 'Serum glypican-4 is a marker of future vascular risk and mortality in coronary angiography patients' (Muendlein et al., 2022). The present article provides additional prospective data on the association of serum glypican-4 (GPC4) with the incidence of future major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), vascular mortality, and overall mortality in a cohort of 760 coronary angiography patients. Serum GPC4 levels significantly differed between patients with or without an event during follow up. The results were confirmed in subgroup analyses with respect to age, sex, type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, the presence of significant coronary stenoses, and renal function, as well as medical treatment. That said, an interaction term between GPC4 and impaired renal function and between GPC4 and the use of beta blockers on the incidence of future fatal events reached statistical significance. In addition, C-statistics were performed showing an additional predictive value of categorized GPC4 to a basic risk model including traditional risk factors for overall mortality.
