IgM-phosphorylcholine autoantibodies and outcome in acute coronary syndromes.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Antibodies against proinflammatory phosphorylcholine (anti-PC) seem to be protective and reduce morbidity. We sought to determine whether low levels of immunoglobulin-M (IgM) autoantibodies against PC add prognostic information in acute coronary syndromes (ACS). METHODS IgM anti-PC titers were measured in serum obtained within 24h of admission… (More)
