Correlations of the histological plaque characteristics with continuous RANTES levels were analysed by Spearman's bivariate correlation test.

*Lipid core size was expressed as no, <40% and >40% of the total plaque area.

**Presence of plaque haemorrhage was scored as present or absent and statistically analysed by the Mann Whitney-U test.
