CVD, in which coronary heart disease is the main manifestation, remains the major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Chronic inflammatory process which starts from childhood tracking to adulthood has been reported to play a major role in the development and progression of atherogenesis leading to coronary heart disease. hs-CRP, an inflammatory marker has also been shown to best predict development of CVD even in the absence of traditional risk factors. Aim of this study is to ascertain hs-CRP as an independent risk factor as other lipid risk factors in young adults yet to develop CVD or other associated conditions.
