October 2009
Internal Medicine Alert;10/29/2009, Vol. 31 Issue 20, p159
The article offers information on treating the risk factor of cardiovascular disease (CVD) such as the C-reative protein (CRP) and hypertension (HTN) in which a study was conducted and suggests that reduction of blood pressure is the primary effector of reducing CVD risk.
