Abstract

Inflammatory processes play an important role in the development of coronary artery disease and onset of acute coronary syndrome as well as progression of disease complications e.g. coronary stent restenosis or heart failure. Better recognition of proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory mechanisms make it possible to use anti-inflammatory factors (Il-10, TNF-α, TGF) in therapy but it must be verified by future clinical studies.
