BACKGROUND We have introduced a concept of using the erythrocyte as a sensor for the detection of enhanced inflammation-sensitive protein concentrations. We presently evaluated the capability of this new biomarker to detect the presence of inflammation in individuals with a history of a vascular disease as opposed to individuals with atherothrombotic risk factors but no clinically evident vascular disease. METHODS The degree of erythrocyte adhesiveness/aggregation was determined in the… CONTINUE READING
