Diagnostic Value of HS-CRP in Stable Angina.
Diagnostic Value of HS-CRP in Stable Angina Patients With Positive Exercise Test as Compared With Coronary Angiography.

The aim of this study was to assess the amount of additive value of HS-CRP levels to a positive exercise tolerance test (ETT) in predicting coronary artery disease (CAD) using coronary angiography as the gold standard. The investigators concluded that HS-CRP can be used as a single predictor of coronary vessel involvement in patients with stable angina and positive ETT.

the investigators included 97 patients with positive ETT and stable angina and saw that Hs-CRP is the only predictor of severity of CAD as compared with coronary angiography in stable angina patients.
