Description

CRP is an annular, pentameric protein found in blood plasma, whose levels rise in response to inflammation. It is an acute-phase protein of hepatic origin that increases following interleukin-6 secretion by macrophages and T cells. CRP is used mainly as a marker of inflammation. The level of C-reactive protein (CRP), which can be measured in human blood, increases when there's inflammation in patient�s body. �It is not a specific test. That means it can reveal that you have inflammation somewhere in your body, but it cannot pinpoint the exact location. Measuring and charting CRP values can prove useful in determining disease progress or the effectiveness of treatments. However, a low CRP level does not always mean that there is no inflammation present. Levels of CRP may not be increased in people with rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.CRP is an annular, pentameric protein found in blood plasma, whose levels rise in response to inflammation.
