C-reactive protein; new research.

Ed. by Satoshi Nagasawa.

The plasma protein, produced by the liver and by adipocytes as part of the inflammatory process, is a routine though unreliable test for risk of heart failure, and a member of the pentraxin family of proteins. Scientists from around the world discuss the findings of their own research, or summarize the current literature on various aspects of C-reactive protein. The topics include a literature review of its implications in psychiatric disorders, its role in evaluating clinical activity in Crohn's Disease, lessons about its relationship to cardiovascular disease from studying genetically engineered mice, its accuracy in diagnosing neonatal infections using a new high-sensitivity analytic method, its kinetics in delirious and non-delirious elderly medical inpatients, and tropical medicine.
