Interleukin (IL)-10, which is expressed in human atherosclerotic plaques, has potent deactivating properties in macrophages and T cells. The aim of this study was to assess whether serum concentrations of IL-10 differed between patients with unstable and stable angina pectoris. METHODS AND RESULTS… CONTINUE READING
