In-hospital and long-term prognostic value of fibrinogen, CRP, and IL-6 levels in patients with acute myocardial infarction treated with thrombolysis



In-hospital and long-term prognostic value of fibrinogen, CRP, and IL-6 levels in patients with acute myocardial infarction treated with thrombolysis



Angiology 57(3): 283-293



Plasma fibrinogen, C-reactive protein (CRP), and interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) receiving thrombolysis have been related to prognosis. The aim of this study was to investigate the time course of plasma fibrinogen, CRP, and IL-6 levels during the in-hospital phase in patients with AMI receiving thrombolysis, and their relationship to in-hospital and prognosis after 12-months follow-up.
