The concentration of CRP was directly correlated with the incidence of coronary events, except when adjusted for fibrinogen concentration. In contrast, low fibrinogen and CRP levels were associated with a low risk of new coronary events, even in patients with elevated cholesterol (28). 2 mg/L). 8) (29). 11 mg/L) had three times the risk of MI. The relationship between CRP and cardiovascular events was independent of other cardiovascular risk factor or homeostatic variables. Additionally, the use of aspirin was associated with significant reductions in the risk of MI among men in the highest quartile but with only small, nonsignificant reductions among those in the lowest quartile of CRP level (Fig.

Angiotensin II is not only a strong vasoconstrictor, but also a mediator of smooth muscle growth and an enhancer of superoxide formation. In addition, angiotensin II has been found to enhance endothelin gene expression in animal endothelial cells (18). t-PA factor, a protease inhibitor that converts plasminogen to plasmin, is synthesized and released by the endothelial cell. Production of t-PA is directly related to stress, bradykinin, cytokines, and thrombin. This substance is inhibited by plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, an important modulator of fibrinolysis.
