In the group with the highest level of C-reactive proteins, there was a 12 percent steeper decline compared to the group with the lowest level of C-reactive proteins.
Three years into the study, the researchers measured for C-reactive protein. Thinking and memory skills were measured over time--at the start of the study, 6 to 9 years later and at the end of the study.
Blood samples were drawn from every neonate for culture sensitivity and measurement of serum C-reactive proteins. In all suspected neonates, empirical antibiotics e.g.
Objective: To evaluate the adequacy of serum C-reactive protein (CRP) in diagnosing neonatal sepsis and role of CRP in determining the duration of antibiotic treatment in neonatal sepsis.
Metabolic and scintigraphic studies of radioiodinated human C-reactive protein in health and disease.
To avoid unnecessary removal of normal appendix more laboratory tests like C-Reactive Proteins (CRP) have been evolved.
Many studies have been published on quantitative analysis of C-reactive protein which is an acute phase reactant protein that is produced in the liver.
C-reactive proteins reacted late and their maximum concentrations appeared at 24 hours.
Various studies have shown that some pro-inflammatory cytokines, peak very fast i.e within 1-4 hours of a sepsis stimulus15 -16 while, C-reactive proteins peak after 24 hours of the septic stimulus.
The Celltac Chemi, which is based on the latex agglutination turbidmetric immunoassay, can rapidly measure C-reactive proteins
(CRPs) in the blood.
Braunwald in his scholarly lecture has listed some emerging cardiovascular risk factors, C-reactive proteins being one of them.
(3) The biomolecule with the greater body of research both from a molecular and epidemiological perspective is C-Reactive Protein (CRP), a plasma protein of the pentraxin family and an acute phase reactant, which displays high sensitivity as a general inflammation marker.
