Kostić, Ana; Slavković, Andjelka; Marjanović, Zoran; Madić, Jelica; Krstić, Marijana; Živanović, Dragoljub; Djerić, Danijela // Vojnosanitetski Pregled: Military Medical & Pharmaceutical Journ;Aug2010, Vol. 67 Issue 8, p644
Background/Aims. Acute appendicitis (AA) remains a diagnostic challenge in children, despite ongoing researches. With an aim to facilitate making diagnosis of AA many scoring systems have been created; among them Alvarado score is the most popular. C-reactive protein (CRP) has proven...

- Utility of Procalcitonin Concentration in the Evaluation of Patients with Malignant Diseases and Elevated C-Reactive Protein Plasma Concentrations. Schüttrumpf, Silke; Binder, Lutz; Hagemann, Thorsten; Berkovic, Dinko; Trümper, Lorenz; Binder, Claudia // Clinical Infectious Diseases;8/15/2006, Vol. 43 Issue 4, p468
Background. Elevated plasma concentrations of the C-reactive protein (CRP) are frequently found in patients with malignant diseases. Discrimination between infection and noninfectious acute-phase reactions is essential for therapeutic decisions. Methods. Because increased procalcitonin (PCT)...
- C-reactive protein predicts carotid atherosclerosis progression in mild to moderate risk and middle-aged patients. Hashimoto, Hiroyuki; Kitagawa, Kazuo; Hougaku, Hidetaka; Etani, Hideki; Hori, Masatsugu // Clinical & Investigative Medicine;Apr2006, Vol. 29 Issue 2, p77
Purpose: The Framingham risk score is a popular tool for estimating cardiovascular risk, but there is debate about the value of C-reactive protein. This study investigated the utility of C-reactive protein to predict the progression of atherosclerosis in relation to the Framingham risk score and...

- C-reactive protein: a critical update. Pepys, Mark B.; Hirschfield, Gideon M. // Journal of Clinical Investigation;6/15/2003, Vol. 111 Issue 12, p1805
Provides information about C-reactive protein (CRP) as a protein and an acute-phase reactant and a knowledge-based framework for interpretation and analysis of clinical observations of CRP in relation to cardiovascular and other diseases. Properties of CRP; Role of CRP in pathogenesis of...
- Blood volume-monitored regulation of ultrafiltration in fluid-overloaded hemodialysis patients: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial. Hecking, Manfred; Antlanger, Marlies; Winnicki, Wolfgang; Reiter, Thomas; Werzowa, Johannes; Haidinger, Michael; Weichhart, Thomas; Polaschegg, Hans-Dietrich; Josten, Peter; Exner, Isabella; Lorenz-Turnheim, Katharina; Eigner, Manfred; Paul, Gernot; Klauser-Braun, Renate; Hörl, Walter H; Sunder-Plassmann, Gere; Säemann, Marcus D // Trials;2012, Vol. 13 Issue 1, p79
Background: Data generated with the body composition monitor (BCM, Fresenius) show, based on bioimpedance technology, that chronic fluid overload in hemodialysis patients is associated with poor survival. However, removing excess fluid by lowering dry weight can be accompanied by intradialytic...
- The New Heart Alarm. Wander, Jonathan // Men's Health;Jan/Feb2003, Vol. 18 Issue 1, p78
Provides information on C-reactive protein (CRP), a naturally occurring blood chemical. Way to determine CRP level; Science behind CRP; Advantages of testing CRP.
- CRP and Adiponectin and Its Oligomers in the Metabolic Syndrome: Evaluation of New Laboratory-Based Biomarkers. Sridevi Devaraj; Michael Swarbrick; Uma Singh; Beverley Adams-Huet; Ishwarlal Jialal // American Journal of Clinical Pathology;May2008, Vol. 129 Issue 5, p815
The metabolic syndrome (MetS) confers an increased risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Although high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP) concentrations are higher and adiponectin concentrations lower in MetS, there is no reliable biochemical measure that can capture its various...
