i-Chroma hsCRP

The C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is synthesized by the liver in response to interleukin-6 and well known as one of the classical acute-phase reactants and as a marker of inflammation. It has recently been suggested that a marker of inflammation, along with serum cholesterol, may be critical component in the development and progression of atherosclerosis. A growing body of evidence has supported the idea that cardiovascular diseases including coronary heart disease, ischemic stroke, and acute myocardial infarction, develop, at least in part, because of a chronic low-level CRP of the vascular endothelium. Apparently, high-sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) is emerging as the strongest and most independent predictive risk factor for atherosclerosis and CVD.
