The prognostic value of C-reactive protein and serum amyloid a protein in severe unstable angina.
BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of unstable angina is poorly understood, and predicting the prognosis at the time of hospital admission is problematic. Recent evidence suggests that there may be activeExpand

Enoxaparin vs unfractionated heparin in high-risk patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes managed with an intended early invasive strategy: primary results of the SYNERGY
CONTEXT Enoxaparin has demonstrated advantages over unfractionated heparin in low- to moderate-risk patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (ACS) treated with a conservativeExpand

Recommendations for the use of cardiac troponin measurement in acute cardiac care.
The release of cardiomyocyte components, i.e. biomarkers, into the bloodstream in higher than usual quantities indicates an ongoing pathological process. Thus, detection of elevated concentrations ofExpand

How to use high-sensitivity cardiac troponins in acute cardiac care
Recommendations for the use of cardiac troponin (cTn) measurement in acute cardiac care have recently been published.1 Subsequently, a high-sensitivity (hs) cTn T assay was introduced into routineExpand

Elevated levels of interleukin-6 in unstable angina.
BACKGROUND Elevated plasma levels of C-reactive protein have been found in the majority of patients with unstable angina. The evidence of elevated levels of acute-phase proteins in unstable angina isExpand

Impaired endothelium-mediated vasodilation in the peripheral vasculature of patients with congestive heart failure.
Impaired endothelial-dependent vasodilation has been demonstrated in two animal models of congestive heart failure and in the coronary circulation of patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy.Expand

How to use high-sensitivity cardiac troponins in acute cardiac care.
High-sensitivity troponin assays, when used and viewed in the clinical context, provide a definite diagnostic benefit compared to conventional troponin assays, especially due to the improved earlyExpand

Unusual CD4+CD28null T lymphocytes and recurrence of acute coronary events.
OBJECTIVES We hypothesized that the expansion of unusual T lymphocytes, CD4+CD28null T cells, might represent a key pathogenetic mechanism of recurrent instability. BACKGROUND Clinical presentationExpand

Elevated levels of C-reactive protein at discharge in patients with unstable angina predict recurrent instability.
BACKGROUND In a group of patients admitted for unstable angina, we investigated whether C-reactive protein (CRP) plasma levels remain elevated at discharge and whether persistent elevation isExpand
