About a decade ago, the prevailing wisdom was that conventional risk factors explained only approximately half of the risk for a myocardial infarction or stroke. Consequently, efforts to identify novel risk factors were undertaken to improve cardiovascular risk prediction. The hypothesis that inflammation is a central contributor to atherothrombosis has stimulated sustained efforts to characterize the specific molecules and pathways that may be involved and to identify biomarkers in humans that… CONTINUE READING
