Circulating immune complexes (CICs) were found to have an effect on the pathogenesis and prognosis of ischemic heart disease (IHD).
A total of 24 patients, 13 as a patient group with IHD (10 males and 3 females), and 11 healthy control group (6males and 5 females), for all the level of CICs was detected by platelets aggregation test (1).
The results showed that all patients with IHD had positive platelets test, while only 4control group had a positive results.
