AbstractINTRODUCTION: Inflammation is increasingly recognised as a key player in atherosclerosis, and C-reactive protein measured using high-sensitivity assay (hsCRP) is the most promising inflammatory marker in predicting the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). In this prospective cohort study, we examined the predictive value of hsCRP for CVD in Hong Kong Chinese and determined if other biomarkers would enhance the predictive value of hsCRP. METHODS: Subjects were recruited from the Hong Kong Cardiovascular Risk Factors Prevalence Study …
