Atherosclerotic plague destabilization is defined as strengthening of chronic inflammation process activity and is the reason of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). ACS manifests C-reactive protein (CRP) level increasing. In contrary, anti-inflammatory processes activate – Interleukin-10 (IL-10) level increases. The aim of study was to determine prognostic value of CRP and IL-10 for the ACS outcomes in 6 month after coronary event. The aim realized with the assistance of the using the new coefficient of the reduction level IL-10. This coefficient allows to predict with high probability recurrent coronary events in patients after ACS.
