abstract

  • Although IL-6, CRP, and SAA all predict CVD risk in women, development of global measures of inflammation and simply counting the number of markers with high levels improve CVD risk stratification. In addition, results indicate that the adverse impact of inflammation may be largely through other mechanisms than promotion of atherogenesis (ie, destabilization of vulnerable plaques).
