Biomarkers of inflammation predict both vascular and non-vascular mortality in older men
Aims: To compare the predictive value of inflammatory biomarkers and lipids for vascular and non-vascular mortality in older men.
Methods and results: The relevance of inflammatory biomarkers and lipids for vascular and non-vascular mortality was assessed in a prospective study of 5360 men (mean age 77 years) followed for 7 years. Vascular mortality was positively associated with log C-reactive protein (InCRP), fibrinogen and total/HDL0C (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol), and in...Expand abstract
