What is High Sensitivity CRP assay used for?
C-reactive protein is present in serum of normal individuals at levels between 0-5mg/l. Research has indicated that CRP levels, which are within the normal range, can be used in a variety of different population subgroups for the assessment of cardiovascular risk for developing a fatal myocardial infarction. CRP levels within the normal range have been associated with coronary heart disease mortality in high-risk individuals. Elevated serum cholesterol levels, elevated diastolic blood pressure and cigarette smoking indicate high-risk.
A complete clinical history is required for accurate interpretation of CRP levels. CRP levels within the normal range may be affected by a number of different factors and should always be compared to previous values.
