Background Among the markers of inflammation, a cytokine, interleukin (IL)-6, promotes the expression of intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1), C-reactive protein (CRP) synthesis, and leads to a series of procoagulant actions with potential major implications on the progression of atherosclerosis. Aim of the study To analyse in a population-based study, the relationship between IL-6 and atherosclerotic lesions and the role of serum ICAM-1 and CRP on this relationship. Population Among 1015… 
Circulating adhesion molecules and arterial stiffness
TLDR
The results indicate that levels of circulating adhesion molecules cannot be used as markers of aortic stiffness in patients and the role of solubleAdhesion molecules in cardiovascular disease has not been fully established and clinical studies show inconsistent results.
Psychological stress increases expression of aortic plaque intercellular adhesion molecule-1 and seruminflammatory cytokines in atherosclerotic rabbit model
TLDR
Psychological stress induces an increased expression of ICAM-1 in aortic atherosclerotic plaque, a higher serum level of CRP, IL-6, and sICAM- 1 expression, and Psychologial stress has a direct effect on the transition from stability to unstability through in-plaque and outplaque inflammation.
Serum IL-6 levels are associated with significant coronary stenosis in cardiovascularly asymptomatic inner-city black adults in the US
TLDR
This study underscores a critical role for IL-6 in atherosclerosis and suggests that IL- 6 may be a marker for significant coronary stenosis in cardiovascularly asymptomatic individuals.
Correlative association of interleukin-6 with intima media thickness: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Intima media thickness is significantly correlated with IL-6 levels in the patients with CVD or a disease posing risk of CVD as well as in apparently healthy populations.
Circulating Soluble Intercellular Adhesion Molecule 1 ( sICAM-1 ) and Subclinical Atherosclerosis : the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults ( CARDIA ) Study
TLDR
The associations with CAC and carotid stenosis were strongest in the top 20th of the sICAM-1 distribution, and the odds ratio for the presence of year-20Carotid artery stenosis per SD of sICAMI was 1.12.
Differential Associations Between Soluble Cellular Adhesion Molecules and Atherosclerosis in the Dallas Heart Study: A Distinct Role for Soluble Endothelial Cell-Selective Adhesion Molecule
TLDR
Findings support a unique role of this cellular adhesion molecule in Atherosclerosis and suggest the need for further exploration of sESAM as a predictive biomarker and potential mediator of atherosclerosis.
Concentrations of vascular endothelial growth factor, C-reactive protein and interleukin 6 in patients qualified to surgical treatment of coronary artery disease Stê¿enie czynnika wzrostu komórek œródb³onka, bia³ka C-reaktywnego i interleukiny 6 u chorych zakwalifikowanych do leczenia operacyjnego c
TLDR
The study aimed to assess the concentrations of VEGF, CRP and IL-6 in patients qualified to surgical treatment of coronary artery disease and to correlate the values with lipids’ concentrations.
Expanded Network of Inflammatory Markers of Atherogenesis: Where Are We Now?
TLDR
The role of several mediators of inflammation, affecting vascular functions and leading toward atherosclerotic lesions are analyzed, including C-reactive protein and interleukin-6.

Monocyte Count, But Not C-Reactive Protein or Interleukin-6, Is an Independent Risk Marker for Subclinical Carotid Atherosclerosis
TLDR
In a healthy community population, monocyte count is a better independent predictor of common carotid IMT and plaque formation than IL-6, hs-CRP, fibrinogen, and WCC.
Systemic inflammatory parameters in patients with atherosclerosis of the coronary and peripheral arteries.
TLDR
Increased plasma levels of CRP, SAA, IL-6, TGF-beta, neopterin, and procalcitonin constitute an inflammatory signature of advanced atherosclerosis and are correlated with the extent of disease but do not provide discriminatory diagnostic power over and above established risk factors.
Circulating adhesion molecules VCAM-1, ICAM-1, and E-selectin in carotid atherosclerosis and incident coronary heart disease cases: the Atherosclerosis Risk In Communities (ARIC) study.
TLDR
Results of logistic regression analyses indicated that the relationship of ICAM-1 and E-selectin with CHD and CAA was independent of other known CHD risk factors and was most pronounced in the highest quartile.
C-reactive protein and interleukin-6 in vascular disease: culprits or passive bystanders?
TLDR
The evidence concerning the cardiovascular prognostic value and the potential direct involvement of CRP and IL-6 in atherogenesis is reviewed.
Circulating cell adhesion molecules are correlated with ultrasound-based assessment of carotid atherosclerosis.
TLDR
A positive association between serum CAMs with carotid IMT is demonstrated and further support the hypothesis that systemic inflammation may have a role in atherosclerotic lesion development.
C-reactive protein and other markers of inflammation in the prediction of cardiovascular disease in women.
TLDR
The addition of the measurement of C-reactive protein to screening based on lipid levels may provide an improved method of identifying persons at risk for cardiovascular events.
Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Gene Polymorphisms in Carotid Atherosclerosis
TLDR
Data suggest that allele 2 of the IL-1ra gene represents a susceptibility factor in the development of carotid atherosclerosis and plaque symptomaticity, and further investigation appears warranted.
Plasma concentration of interleukin-6 and the risk of future myocardial infarction among apparently healthy men.
TLDR
A role for cytokine-mediated inflammation in the early stages of atherogenesis is supported in apparently healthy men, and elevated levels of IL-6 are associated with increased risk of future MI.
C-Reactive Protein and Coronary Artery Calcification: The Study of Inherited Risk of Coronary Atherosclerosis (SIRCA)
TLDR
In SIRCA, CRP was not associated with CAC in men, and a weak association in women was lost after adjustment for BMI, suggesting the relation between CRP and clinical events might not be related to atherosclerotic burden.
