Impact of Chronic Inflammation, Assessed by hs-CRP, on the Association between Red Cell Distribution Width and Arterial Cardiovascular Disease: The Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-04-10)
Red cell distribution width (RDW), a measure of variability in size of circulating erythrocytes, is associated with arterial cardiovascular disease (CVD), but the underlying mechanism remains unclear. We aimed to investigate the impact of chronic inflammation as measured by high sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP) on this relationship, and explore whether RDW could be a mediator in the causal pathway between ...
