OBJECTIVES We evaluated C-reactive protein (CRP) alone and in conjunction with a rapid qualitative assay for cardiac-specific troponin T (cTnT) for predicting 14-day mortality in patients with unstable angina or non-Q wave myocardial infarction (NQMI). BACKGROUND Elevated CRP has been found to correlate with higher risk for cardiac events in patients with coronary disease. METHODS At enrollment into the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) 11A trial, a dose-ranging trial of… CONTINUE READING
