Abstract
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is an acute phase protein which appears in the serum from patients with infectious, inflammatory, and neoplastic diseases. This protein is normally undetectable but appears in serum in response to inflammatory stimuli or pathological conditions, and subsequently disappears upon clinical recovery. The presence of this serum factor has been accepted as a nonspecific indicator of disease. Little is known about the role of CRP.
