High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP) | ZRT Labs
Assesses risks associated with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.


ZRT Laboratory is pleased to announce the new and improved C-Reactive Protein in blood spot. The test can provide reliable predictive values for determining overall cardiometabolic risk, when accompanied by clinical assessment.
 

What is High Sensitivity C-reactive Protein (HS-CRP)?

Inflammation (swelling) of the arteries is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. It has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, heart attack, sudden death, stroke, and peripheral arterial disease. It has also been linked to an increased risk of restenosis, or the re-closing of an artery that has been treated with balloon angioplasty.

High Sensitivity (also called Ultra-sensitive) C-reactive protein is known as HS-CRP, US-CRP or CRP for short. It is a protein found in the blood and what we call a "marker" for inflammation, meaning its presence indicates a heightened state of inflammation in the body. Inflammation is a normal response to many physical states including fever, injury and infection. Inflammation plays a role in the initiation and progression of cardiovascular disease.

CRP and Cardiovascular Risk

In studies involving large numbers of patients, CRP levels seem to be correlated with levels of cardiac risk. In fact, CRP seems to be at least as predictive of cardiac risk as cholesterol levels. The Physicians Health Study, a clinical trial involving 18,000 apparently healthy physicians, was the first large study to show that elevated levels of CRP were associated with a threefold increase in the risk of heart attack.

In the Harvard Women's Health Study, results of the CRP test were more accurate than cholesterol levels in predicting coronary problems. Twelve different markers of inflammation were studied in healthy, postmenopausal women. After three years, CRP was the strongest predictor of risk. Women in the group with the highest CRP levels were more than four times as likely to have died from coronary disease, or suffered a nonfatal heart attack or stroke. This group was also more likely to have required a cardiac procedure such as angioplasty or bypass surgery than women in the group with the lowest levels.
