The production of PTX-3 is increased by the different proinflammatory cytokines [e.g., interleukin-1b, tumor necrosis factor-[alpha]], tissue damage or the stimulation of microbial agents.8,9 C-reactive protein (CRP) is an acute-phase protein
that increases remarkably during infection, inflammation, and with tissue damage.
