New content[edit]

Hi, I'm putting new content based on recent studies... One of my colleague wrote a article about CRP and he was kind enough to let me put it online. Eridanis, 10-18-04

Please keep it concise and to the point. Has this been printed in a peer-reviewed publication? I'm asking because original research cannot be published on Wikipedia. A good review, however, is perfect. JFW | T@lk 07:43, 19 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Any objections to a section on Alzheimer's disease that mentions CRP is made by neurons in the brain as well as the liver? I have citations, of course. There's a whole body of literature that I'm not sure I'm ready to sum up about CRP and the complement system playing a role in the neurodegeneration seen in AD and other dementias. Also, if anyone has spent a lot of time on this page, I'd appreciate a suggestion for where to insert it. It seems to fit in parallel with other diseases, each with their own section, but I don't want to stick it as the first item and offend anyone who has put a lot of time into other diseases where CRP's role is more clear or more obviously important. -Thanks! --Mike (talk) 15:17, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

The logical place to put this would be in a new subsection in the clinical significance section. Per WP:MEDRS, secondary sources (i.e., review articles) are strongly preferred to support medical claims. It looks like there are a number suitable source (see PubMed search).

Should this be in [[Category:Blood_tests]] instead of [[Category:Medical_tests]] ? --RobBrisbane 11:20, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Not atherogenic[edit]

hrCRP is a marker of atherosclerosis burden, but there is now experimental evidence that CRP is not a cause but rather an epiphenomenon in atherosclerosis: PMID 17588586. JFW | T@lk 12:16, 28 February 2008 (UTC)


is CRP ALWAYS raised during inflammatory arthritis? --CarTick (talk) 02:50, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Incomplete sentence[edit]

"This is based on the JUPITER trial that found that elevated CRP levels without hyperlipidemia benefited."

This sentence is incoherent: The JUPITER trial found that elevated CRP levels without hyperlipidemia benefited what? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:00, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Clinical significance and diagnostic use[edit]

I think these sections need combining and rearranging. CRP is mainly used as a non-specific marker of inflammation (e.g. see here), but the article currently doesn't reflect that - it starts talking about specific conditions where it's less important, like cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Redundancies deleted, rewording[edit]

Did the above; whole page still needs lots of work.

Need more on non-hs-CRP test[edit]

We are told how the hs-CRP test is done, and how accurate it is, but how else is CRP measured and how accurate is that ? - Rod57 (talk) 13:32, 13 September 2015 (UTC)

The firts page of the printable version is all messed up. It prints rubbish.
