Abstract

Limited, controversial data exist regarding changes in high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels over short times and the importance of detecting these changes in patients who have coronary artery disease (CAD). We investigated the variation of hs-CRP levels and their association with the severity of CAD in patients with stable CAD.
