Abstract

Objective: Although various inflammatory markers have been studied in patients with slow coronary flow (SCF), serum neopterin levels have not been studied previously. We investigated the serum neopterin and high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels and the relationship between neopterin and hs-CRP levels and TIMI flow in patients with SCE
