C-reactive protein is the most sensitive and fastest indicator of tissue damage during inflammation, necrosis, injuries and tumors, parasitic infections. Previously, the analysis was done to confirm acute bacterial infections, inflammatory diseases. But today an ultrasensitive method for the detection of C-reactive protein has appeared, which detects concentrations 10 times lower than the classical method.
Studies have also been conducted proving that C-reactive protein is a superearly marker of so-called “silent” inflammation, which primarily develops in the vascular wall and further leads to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques, the occurrence of complications, heart attacks and strokes. By assigning this analysis, the doctor assesses your individual risks of developing these conditions, and recommends methods of prevention or treatment. In the future, C-reactive protein is a reliable indicator for monitoring the effectiveness of preventive measures.
