OBJECTIVE we assessed the association between baseline eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) levels, a sensitive marker of eosinophil activation, and clinical outcome in patients undergoing bare metal stent (BMS) implantation. METHODS basal ECP levels were measured in 110 patients (69±11 years, 88 men) undergoing BMS implantation. Major adverse cardiac events (MACEs), defined as cardiac death, non-fatal myocardial infarction, or clinically-driven target lesion revascularization, were registered… CONTINUE READING
