Thirty patients scheduled to coronary angiography and IVUS in according to their treating physician decision will be enrolled in the study. The coronary angiography and IVUS will be done on according to regular clinical standards.
As the study protocol, 40 cc of blood will be drawn from the patients after written informed consent.
The laboratory tests will be processed for the above mentioned serum markers of unstable plaque.
A multivariate correlation test will be done between the different serum markers and the plaque morphology by angiography and composition (virtual histology) by IVUS.
