C-reactive Protein (CRP) is mainly formed in hepatocytes. The synthesis rate is determined by the influence of cytokines involved in inflammatory processes. The biological half-life is estimated to be 13-16 hours. A connection between inflammatory reactions and cardiovascular diseases such as arterios­clerosis and latent or chronically persisting infections has been described in recent studies. The CRP concentrations in healthy persons are under 5 µg/ml. CRP belongs to the acute phase proteins and will be released within 24 hours after inflammatory process started (fever, pneumonia, myocardial infarction, etc.). CRP proved itself as a marker for inflammation.

This ELISA-Version (K 9720s) is based on a 1-point-calibration.
