Associations between pentraxin 3 and severity of coronary artery disease.

Liu H, Guan S, Fang W, Yuan F, Zhang M, Qu X - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: One-way analysis of variance showed that PTX3 levels were significantly higher in patients with Gensini scores >90 compared with patients with scores of 46-90 or <45 (0-45:4.8±0.8, 46-90:6.7±1.2, >90:7.7±2.0, p<0.001).Stepwise multiple linear regression showed that PTX3 levels were significantly associated with Gensini score in patients with chronic renal dysfunction (p=0.012), while no significant association was found for CRP.PTX3 is closely associated with the severity of coronary artery stenosis in patients with chronic renal dysfunction.

BMJOPEN2014007123F2: Correlation between the C reactive protein (CRP) level and the Gensini score.

Mentions: The PTX3 level was associated with the Gensini score of the patients (r=0.513, p<0.001) (figure 1). The CRP level was weakly associated with the Gensini score of the patients (r=0.261, p=0.044) (figure 2).
