Clinical utility of C-reactive protein measured at admission, hospital discharge, and 1 month later to predict outcome in patients with acute coronary disease. The RISCA (recurrence and inflammation in the acute coronary syndromes) study.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES This study was designed to prospectively determine, in patients with an acute coronary syndrome, whether the inflammatory marker, C-reactive protein (CRP), measured at hospital admission, discharge, and 1 month later has incremental value to predict outcomes at 1 year. BACKGROUND The clinical utility of CRP measurements in patients with acute… (More)
