Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Initially described as key regulators in metabolic bone disease osteoprotegerin (OPG), receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B (RANK) and RANK ligand (RANKL) have also been discriminated as regulators in immunologic function. Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) develop over many years in life and are often triggered by inflammatory processes within the vessel wall that lead to vascular remodeling. Recently some study groups have described OPG as a prognostic parameter for mortality and morbidity in cardiovascular patients.
