Abstract

Inflammation, endothelial dysfunction and platelet activation play an important role in pathogenesis of vulnerable plaques of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). However little is known about the inter-relation of these in early phase of ACS. This study sought to determine a possible multimarker strategy by linking three indices to provide an early assessment of the risk of ACS. Serum protein and gene expression level of interleukin-6 (IL6;biomarker of inflammation), von willebrand Factor (VWF; biomarker of endothelial dysfunction) and soluble P-selectin (SELP; biomarker of platelet activation) were measured in 22 patients with ACS (age 55.2+10.4 years) and 28 controls with angiographically documented occlusive coronary atery disease (CAD) without previous ACS events (age 53.5+8.4 years).
