1059G/C polymorphism within the exon 2 of the C-reactive protein gene: relationship to C-reactive protein levels and prognosis in unstable angina.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Patients with unstable angina (UA) and high C-reactive protein (CRP) have increased cardiovascular risk. Whether genetic factors such as the synonymous 1059G/C polymorphism within the exon 2 of the human CRP gene determine CRP levels and outcome is unclear. METHODS In 105 consecutive patients with UA, we assessed the CRP 1059G/C polymorphism… (More)
