C-reactive protein and other markers of inflammation in the prediction of cardiovascular disease in women.
BACKGROUND Since inflammation is believed to have a role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular events, measurement of markers of inflammation has been proposed as a method to improve the predictionExpand
C-reactive protein, interleukin 6, and risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus.
CONTEXT Inflammation is hypothesized to play a role in development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM); however, clinical data addressing this issue are limited. OBJECTIVE To determine whetherExpand
C-reactive protein, the metabolic syndrome, and risk of incident cardiovascular events: an 8-year follow-up of 14 719 initially healthy American women.
BACKGROUND The metabolic syndrome describes a high-risk population having 3 or more of the following clinical characteristics: upper-body obesity, hypertriglyceridemia, low HDL, hypertension, andExpand
Fasting compared with nonfasting triglycerides and risk of cardiovascular events in women.
CONTEXT The association of triglycerides with incident cardiovascular disease remains controversial. Although triglyceride levels are typically obtained in the fasting state, postprandialExpand
Lack of effect of long-term supplementation with beta carotene on the incidence of malignant neoplasms and cardiovascular disease.
BACKGROUND Observational studies suggest that people who consume more fruits and vegetables containing beta carotene have somewhat lower risks of cancer and cardiovascular disease, and earlier basicExpand
Development and validation of improved algorithms for the assessment of global cardiovascular risk in women: the Reynolds Risk Score.
CONTEXT Despite improved understanding of atherothrombosis, cardiovascular prediction algorithms for women have largely relied on traditional risk factors. OBJECTIVE To develop and validateExpand
Low-density lipoprotein subclass patterns and risk of myocardial infarction.
The association of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) subclass patterns with coronary heart disease was investigated in a case-control study of nonfatal myocardial infarction. Subclasses of LDL wereExpand
Prevalence of dry eye syndrome among US women.
PURPOSE Dry eye syndrome (DES) is believed to be one of the most common ocular problems in the United States (US), particularly among older women. However, there are few studies describing theExpand
Prospective study of C-reactive protein and the risk of future cardiovascular events among apparently healthy women.
BACKGROUND C-reactive protein (CRP) predicts risk of myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke among apparently healthy men, but in women, virtually no data are available. METHODS AND RESULTS CRP wasExpand
