Inflammation may play an important role in acute coronary syndromes. We studied the prognostic value of fibrinogen, an acute-phase protein directly involved in thrombotic process, measured serially in 1,473 patients with unstable angina and non-Q-wave myocardial infarction participating in the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction IIIB trial. Overall, no association was found between baseline (pretreatment) fibrinogen and in-hospital (< or = 10 days) myocardial infarction (p=0.70) and death (p… CONTINUE READING
