Abstract

Social position and psychosocial factors are associated with coronary disease, but the underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms remain unclear. In a sample of 283 nonsmokers, we found that social position was inversely associated with interleukin-6 and C-reactive protein and that participants with mild depression had impaired endothelial function.
