Publisher Description

Introduction C-reactive protein (CRP), a systemic acute-phase reactant, has been shown in vitro to play a role in all stages of atherosclerosis (1). CRP levels are elevated in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus (2,3). Since 40% heritability has been suggested for CRP levels (4), genetic polymorphisms of CRP have become a matter of interest in prediction of cardiovascular events. 1059G/C polymorphism, the focus of our study, was reported to be associated with arterial pulse wave velocity (5) and future arterial thrombosis (6), but no relationship was observed with restenosis risk in a post-angioplasty series (7).
