CRP

A gene on chromosome 1q21-q23 that encodes C-reactive protein, which belongs to the pentaxin family. It is involved in host immune defence due to its ability to recognise foreign pathogens and damaged host cells and trigger their elimination by interacting with humoral and cellular effector systems. Plasma CRP is markedly increased during the acute-phase response to tissue injury, infection or other inflammatory stimuli.

There is a considerable association between serum albumin and CRP levels in CKD children, as CRP levels boost up there is a reduction in serum albumin, the reason for this is that as the pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1, IL-6 and TNFa cause an increase in positive APRs in liver they also cause reduction in synthesis of albumin and other negative APRs.8 CRP and albumin are together acute phase reactants, of which CRP is positive APR (acute phase reactant) while albumin is negative APR.
CRP estimation required specialised laboratory equipment, which has now been resolved by using CRP kits.
The hypothesis of our work was that CRP levels can be used as a predictor of poor prognosis in patients with COPD with acute exacerbation.

Serum CRP concentrations significantly increased post-operatively on Day 1, with mean value of 102.9+-82.0mg/L (p Less than 0.0005), and further increased on Day 2 with mean value of 166.9+-128.1mg/L (p Less than 0.0005), but declined on Day 7, with mean value of 42.7+-63.6mg/L (p Less than 0.005).
