[Inflammatory processes in the pathogenesis of acute coronary syndromes].

Abstract

Cardiovascular diseases, including acute coronary syndromes (ACS), are one of the most serious problems of modern medicine and therefore every year 4 million Europeans have died. It is now believed that elevated levels of inflammatory factors in the blood promotes the development cardiovascular events and chronic inflammation plays a key role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Intensively conducted research in many centers in the world can confirm the desirability of introducing anti-inflammatory therapy to standard drug therapy. The balance between pro- and anti-inflammatory processes affect the risk of developing ACS.
