Abstract: In this high-risk population, we found that low hs-CRP (<2 mg/L) appeared to be associated with reduced risk of incident stroke, incident CHD, and CHD death, whereas low LDL-C (<70 mg/dL) was not associated with protective effects. Thus, our results support other data with respect to the importance of inflammatory processes in the pathogenesis of CVD.
