Background The degree of coronary collateral development is not same in every patient with similar degree of coronary stenosis. In animal studies monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) has been found to be related to collateral vessel development. In this study we investigated whether a higher serum MCP-1 level is related to better coronary collateral vessel development in patients with stable coronary artery disease.
