Acute-phase reaction C-reactive protein (CRP), albumin, fibrinogen
Pro-inflammatory cytokines Interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα)
Endothelial dysfunction Soluble intercellular adhesion molecules-1 (sICAM-1), soluble vascular cell adhesion molecules-1 (sVCAM-1), soluble endothelial-leukocyte adhesion molecule (E-selectin)
Platelet activation Von Willebrand factor (vWf)
