An increasing body of evidence suggests that elevated levels of blood pressure may induce a proinflammatory response. Indeed, both C-reactive protein and blood pressure are independent determinants of cardiovascular risk, and, in combination, each parameter has additional predictive value. Hence, strategies targeted to lower blood pressure and reduce vascular inflammation may potentially provide clinical benefit. In this review, we discuss the role of chronic low-grade inflammation in the context of cardiovascular disease with a focus on roles of cyclooxygenase-1 and -2 in potential anti-inflammatory treatment strategies.
