BACKGROUND Inflammatory reactions in coronary plaques play an important role in the pathogenesis of acute atherothrombotic events; inflammation elsewhere is also associated with both atherogenesis generally and its thrombotic complications. Recent studies indicate that systemic markers of inflammation can identify subjects at high risk of coronary events. METHODS AND RESULTS We used a sensitive immunoradiometric assay to examine the association of serum C-reactive protein (CRP) with the… Expand
