Abstract

Background: Studies suggested that Interleukin-18(IL-18)/Interleukin-10(IL-10) ratio is an independent predictor of adverse cardiovascular events in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). In this study we aimed to evaluate the predictive significance of IL-18/IL-10 for the occurrence of ACS in patients with stable angina pectoris (SAP) over a 40-month follow-up.
