We sought to assess the relation between circulating levels of inflammation markers, such as neopterin and C-reactive protein, and the development of adverse cardiovascular events in patients with hypertension but without obstructive coronary artery disease. We observed that patients who developed adverse events during follow-up had significantly higher neopterin levels compared with patients without events.
