N-Terminal Pro-Brain Natriuretic Peptide Is a More Useful Predictor of Cardiovascular Disease Risk Than C-Reactive Protein in Older Men With and Without Pre-Existing Cardiovascular Disease

Study Questions:

What is the relative predictive capability of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (CRP) for risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in older men with and without pre-existing CVD?
