Leukocytes and the risk of ischemic diseases.
Predictive indexes for atherosclerotic risk are imperfect, suggesting that there are predictive factors not commonly considered. Such a factor may be the white blood cell (WBC) count. Epidemiologic… Expand
Fibrinogen as a Cardiovascular Risk Factor
The notion that fibrinogen is related to cardiovascular diseases was first voiced in the 1950s [1-4], when its level was found to be increased in patients with ischemic heart disease. During the last… Expand
Plasma fibrinogen — an independent cardiovascular risk factor
- E. Ernst
- Journal of internal medicine
- 1 June 1990
Abstract. Apart from being an acute phase reactant, fibrinogen appears to play an important although not widely recognized role in athero‐/thrombogenesis. Arteriosclerotic diseases are associated… Expand

Fibrinogen, viscosity, and white blood cell count.

The possible role of hemorheology in atherothrombogenesis.
Conventional risk factors predict only about 30-50% of incidental cases in cardiovascular diseases, which are still the leading cause of death in western societies. During the last decade, the… Expand
REGULATION OF CEREBRAL BLOOD FLOW IN RESPONSE TO CHANGES IN BLOOD VISCOSITY
PLACEBO-CONTROLLED, DOUBLE-BLIND STUDY OF HAEMODILUTION IN PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE
Twenty-four men who had stable claudication with long, collateralized femoropopliteal obstructions were treated by isovolaemic haemodilution and sham dilutions in a double-blind, placebo-controlled,… Expand
Association between plasma viscosity and all‐cause mortality: results from the MONICA–Augsburg Cohort Study 1984–92
Several studies have reported a strong association between various markers of the acute‐phase response and death from cardiovascular diseases and all‐cause mortality. Inflammation at a low level of… Expand
Fibrinogen as a cardiovascular risk factor--interrelationship with infections and inflammation.
- E. Ernst
- European heart journal
- 1 December 1993
Epidemiological evidence suggests that fibrinogen represents a major cardiovascular risk factor. Clinical data is in full agreement with this hypothesis. As fibrinogen also represents an acute phase… Expand
