Plasma pro-inflammatory cytokines, IgM-uria and cardiovascular events in patients with chest pain: A comparative study.

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


Risk stratification of patients presenting with acute chest pain is crucial for immediate and long-term management. Traditional predictors are suboptimal; therefore inflammatory biomarkers are studied for clinical assessment of patients at risk. Recently, we reported the association of IgM-uria with worse cardiovascular outcome in patients with acute chest pain. In this study, in the same cohort of patients with chest pain, we compared the value of IgM-uria to pro-inflammatory cytokines in predicting the occurrence of subsequent cardiovascular events.
