C - Reactive protein (CRP) test

A test that measures C-Reactive protein levels in your blood. c-Reactive Protein, an acute phase reactant, is a pentameric protein found in blood and whose circulating concentrations increase inflammatory reaction.

CRP is a protein which is produced by liver whenever there is inflammation in the body. Whenever there is inflammation in the body its levels rise quickly and also its level falls quickly on removal of inflammatory stimulus.

Whenever there is chronic inflammation in the body in conditions such as chronic infections the CRP levels is persistently elevated. It is a very nonspecific test and its levels can be elevated in any inflammatory condition.

It binds to lysophosphatidylcholine expressed on the surface of dead or dying cells and some strains of bacteria. This binding then activates the complement system and promotes phagocytosis by macrophages to clear the dead cells/bacteria.
