JUPITER included only people with high C-reactive protein and none of the participants they had see if they had evidence of calcium in their coronary arteries.

The researchers also a group selected from the MESA low levels of C-reactive protein had. To compare were able to compare directly, the prognostic significance of coronary calcium C-reactive protein..
