Plasma concentration of high sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP) is used as a marker for inflammatory states and is directly correlated with the risk for coronary heart disease. Evidence concerning the role of inflammation in atheroma formation has been derived from several models of atherosclerosis. Inflammation should exert its adverse vascular effects by structural changes in the artery wall and consequently alterations in arterial elasticity, which could be detected already in asymptomatic… CONTINUE READING
