Increased levels of various plasma molecules, including C-reactive protein (CRP), and endothelial markers von Willebrand factor (vWF), E-selectin, intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and thrombomodulin all predict the development and/or progression of cardiovascular disease. As CRP has been shown to upregulate the expression of adhesion molecules on… CONTINUE READING
