Data from the early 1990s in Framingham showed that suboptimal vitamin B 6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B 12 , or folate were relatively common, and approximately 25 to 30% of adults were affected (6). Moderately elevated homocysteine levels frequently accompanied these subclinical deficiencies. Recently published homocysteine and B vitamin data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey generally corroborate the patterns above: homocysteine levels typically were greater in men than women; positively associated with age; and inversely associated with vitamin B 12 and folate.

3 mg/dL (90th percentile of normal controls) at presentation remained an independent predictor of new MI after adjustment for ECG changes and cardiac troponin T (150). In contrast, two studies have not detected a prognostic relationship between hs-CRP and clinical outcomes in acute ischemic heart disease. In a study of 195 patients with unstable angina followed to hospital discharge, adverse cardiac events occurred with similar frequency in those with or without elevation of baseline hs-CRP (151).
