High-sensitivity C-reactive protein in acute heart failure: insights from the ASCEND-HF trial.


BACKGROUND Inflammation is associated with progression of chronic heart failure (HF). Few data exist on high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) levels and their importance in acute HF. METHODS AND RESULTS In this biomarker substudy of the ASCEND-HF trial, we measured hsCRP levels at admission (n = 794), 48-72 hours (n = 677), and 30 days (n = 581) and… (More)
