Abstract
INTRODUCTION: Biomarkers of subclinical systemic chronic inflammation are increasingly recognised as a key player in atherosclerosis. C-reactive protein, measured using high-sensitivity assay (hsCRP), is the most promising inflammatory marker in predicting the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). As obesity is associated with disregulated expression of various adipokines, either pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory, such adipokines may also serve as non-traditional biomarkers for the accelerated atherosclerosis associated with obesity. In this prospective cohort study, we examined the predictive value of a variety of non-traditional biomarkers for CVD among Hong Kong Chinese, and determined if they would …
