Correlation of High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein and Calcific Aortic Valve Disease
- Persistent endothelial dysfunction in calcified aortic stenosis beyond valve replacement surgery. Chenevard, R.; Bechir, M.; Hurlimann, D.; Ruschitzka, F.; Turina, J.; Luscher, T. F.; Noll, G. // Heart;Dec2006, Vol. 92 Issue 12, p1862
The article examines the endothelial dysfunction and signs of inflammation in hemodynamically relevant degenerative aortic stenosis before and after valve replacement. This dysfunction was found to be associated with an increased plasma levels of C-reactive protein (CRP). Aortic stenosis is...
- Aortic flow propagation velocity as an early predictor of high coronary risk in hypertensive patients. Yıldırım, Mustafa; Yiginer, Omer; Uzun, Mehmet; Cingozbay, Bekir Yilmaz; Sag, Cemal; Kabul, Hasan Kutsi; Uz, Omer; Isilak, Zafer; Kardesoglu, Ejder; Cebeci, Bekir Sitki // Medicinski Glasnik;Feb2012, Vol. 9 Issue 1, p42
Aim To assess the value of aortic flow propagation velocity (Vp) in detecting hypertensive patients with coronary risk. Methods The study included 120 patients with hypertension. According to the 10-year risk of coronary heart disease the patients were categorized in the three groups: 10-year...

- High sensitivity C-reactive protein in systemic lupus erythematosus: relation to disease activity, clinical presentation and implications for cardiovascular risk. Barnes, E. V.; Narain, S.; Naranjo, A.; Shuster, J.; Segal, M. S.; Sobel, E. S.; Armstrong, A. E.; Santiago, B. E.; Reeves, W. H.; Richards, H. B. // Lupus;2005, Vol. 14 Issue 8, p576
Measurement of high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), has been used in the assessment of disease activity in numerous rheumatic conditions including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). However, the utility of hs-CRP measurement in patients with lupus is uncertain. This study examined if...
- Evaluation of the Normal Range of Complement (C3 and C4) Concentration and CReactive Protein (CRP) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al-Mehdar, Hussein // Journal of Applied Sciences Research;Jan2013, Vol. 9 Issue 1, p692
The complement system is a biochemical cascade that plays a major role in defense and the inflammatory process. C - reactive protein is a major acute-phase protein and is a test which measures the concentration in blood serum of a special type of protein. The aim of this study was to determine...

- Retraction: C-reactive protein in aortic valve disease. Sanchez, Pedro L.; Mazzone, Anna Maria // Cardiovascular Ultrasound;2006, Vol. 4, p42
A retraction of the article "C-reactive protein in aortic valve disease," by Pedro L Sanchez and Anna Maria Mazzone is presented.
- Documented and clinically suspected bacterial infection precipitating intensive care unit admission in patients with hematological malignancies: impact on outcome. Benoit, Dominique D.; Depuydt, Pieter O.; Peleman, Renaat A.; Offner, Fritz C.; Vandewoude, Koenraad H.; Vogelaers, Dirk P.; Blot, Stijn I.; Noens, Lucien A.; Colardyn, Francis A.; Decruyenaere, Johan M. // Intensive Care Medicine;Jul2005, Vol. 31 Issue 7, p934
Objective: To assess the impact of documented and clinically suspected bacterial infection precipitating ICU admission on in-hospital mortality in patients with hematological malignancies. Design and setting: Prospective observational study in a 14-bed medical ICU at a tertiary university...
- Inflammatory Markers in Coronary Artery Disease: Pathophysiological Mechanisms, Prognostic and Therapeutic Implications. Ikonomidis, Ignatios; Stamatelopoulos, Kimon; Lekakis, John; Th. Kremastinos, Dimitrios // Current Cardiology Reviews;2006, Vol. 2 Issue 3, p173
Several inflammatory proteins intervene with endothelium and haemostatic factors leading to plaque formation and rupture. Of these, C-reactive protein (CRP), monocyte/macrophage colony-stimulating factor (MCSF) and interleukin- 6 (IL-6) promote atherogenesis by inducing monocyte-macrophage...
