This study recruited 498 STEMI patients post percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), 40 with stable angina pectoris (SAP) and 137 healthy participants. Plasma MIF levels were measured at admission and after PCI. The primary endpoints were in-hospital mortality and major adverse cardio- and/or cerebro-vascular events (MACE/MACCE) during hospitalization and 3.2-year follow-up period.ResultsAdmission MIF levels were elevated in 88.4% STEMI patients over the upper reference limit of healthy controls and it was 3-7 folds higher than that in SAP and control groups (122±61 vs. 39±19 vs. 17±8 ng/mL, P
