Fetuin-A is a ubiquitous anti-inflammatory glycoprotein that counteracts proinflammatory cytokine production. Previous studies have shown that low fetuin-A concentration is associated with cardiovascular death and may play an important role in the prognosis of patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). The purpose of this study was to assess in large cohort of patients admitted for ACS the prognostic value of fetuin-A adjusted for C-reactive protein value (CRP) and Global Registry of Acute… CONTINUE READING
