Abstract

Mild elevations in C-reactive protein concentration predict myocardial infarction, stroke, and vascular death in a variety of clinical settings. Despite the lack of specific evidence that C-reactive protein levels are independently associated with cardiovascular risk in patients with hypertension, the prognostic value of C-reactive protein has proven to be… (More)
