Plasma procalcitonin is associated with all-cause and cancer mortality in apparently healthy men: a prospective population-based study.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The inflammatory mediator procalcitonin (PCT) has previously been associated with prognosis in myocardial infarction, cancer and sepsis patients. The importance of PCT in the general population is currently unknown. Our aim was to assess the relationship between plasma PCT and the risk of all-cause and cause-specific mortality in apparently healthy individuals with no previous history of cardiovascular disease or cancer.
