High CRP and Normal LDL Are Long-Term Risk Factors for Heart Disease, Stroke and Death

New research shows a long-term benefit in screening people for c-reactive protein (CRP), a marker for inflammation, even if they have normal levels of bad cholesterol, because of increased long-term risk for heart attack, stroke and death.

"The new study analyzed patients' risk over an average of seven years to determine that CRP is, in fact, a long-term indicator of cardiovascular risk," said Ballantyne. "This is important because approximately one in five ment over 50 and women over 60 has a similar profile of increased CRP, but normal LDL."

Read details of the high CRP, normal LDL cardiovascular risk study.
