Prediction of myocardial infarction by N-terminal-pro-B-type natriuretic peptide, C-reactive protein, and renin in subjects with cerebrovascular disease.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), C-reactive protein (CRP), and renin are elevated in persons at risk for cardiovascular disease. However, data that directly compare these markers in the prediction of myocardial infarction (MI) are limited. METHODS AND RESULTS: N-terminal-proBNP (NT-proBNP), CRP, and renin were measured in baseline blood samples from a nested case-control study of the 6105 participants of the Perindopril Protection Against Recurrent Stroke Study (PROGRESS), a pla...
