Abstract

This study demonstrated a weak correlation of sE-selectin level with inflammatory markers and prediction of short-term mortality in diabetic CHF patients. Elevated serum sE-selectin levels and concomitantly increased NT-proBNP concentrations have additive predictive power in CHF. This suggests that parallel activation of various pathophysiological pathways confers increased risk of adverse outcome in CHF.
