Abstract

C-reactive protein, an acute phase reactant, is a sensitive marker of inflammation. High plasma levels of C-reactive protein are associated with an increased risk of myocardial infarction and stroke among apparently healthy subjects, as well as among those at higher risk because of age, smoking, or previous coronary artery disease, and are useful in cardiovascular risk stratification. Moreover, statins have been shown to lower C-reactive protein levels. contrast, oral hormone replacement therapy appears to increase C-reactive protein levels. However, the effects of different hormonal preparations and their routes of administration are not known. We therefore compared the effects of oral estrogen and transdermal estradiol on C-reactive protein plasma levels in healthy postmenopausal women
