Background information

Understanding C-Reactive Protein (CRP) in Immunoassays

What is C-Reactive Protein?

C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein made by the liver and released into the bloodstream in response to inflammation. It plays a crucial role in the body’s immune response by helping to fight infection and heal injuries.

Why Measure CRP?

Measuring CRP levels through immunoassays is important for several reasons:

• Detecting Inflammation: Elevated CRP levels can indicate inflammation in the body, although they do not pinpoint the exact cause or location.
• Diagnosing and Managing Diseases: CRP is a valuable tool in diagnosing and monitoring conditions like bacterial infections, autoimmune diseases, and systemic inflammations.
• Assessing Cardiovascular Risk: High-sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP) tests can help evaluate the risk of cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attacks and strokes.
• Monitoring Treatment Efficacy: Changes in CRP levels can indicate how well a patient is responding to treatment for inflammatory conditions.
• Differentiating Infections: CRP levels can sometimes help differentiate between bacterial and viral infections.

How Does CRP Testing Work?

CRP testing is typically done through a blood test. The process involves:

1. Blood Sample Collection: A small blood sample is taken from a vein in your arm.
2. Analysis in Laboratory: The sample is analyzed using immunoassay techniques to measure the CRP level.
3. Interpreting Results: Your healthcare provider interprets the results, considering other tests and your overall health status.

Understanding Your Results

• Normal Range: Typically, a normal CRP level is below 10 mg/L, but this can vary.
• Elevated Levels: Higher levels might indicate inflammation or infection, but further tests are often required for a specific diagnosis.
