Comparison of C-Reactive Protein and Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol Levels in the Prediction of First Cardiovascular Events - Comparison of C-Reactive Protein and Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol Levels in the Prediction of First Cardiovascular Events

Description:

The goal of this study was to compare the relative value of high sensitivity CRP and LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) in their association with cardiovascular events in "apparently" healthy women, and to determine whether the CRP provides added prognostic information after adjustment for all the components of the Framingham risk score.
