of CRP by high sensitivity CRP assays may add to the predictive value
of other markers used to assess the risk of cardiovascular and peripheral
- Increases in CRP values are nonspecific, however,
coronary risk may be present when the results are above 0.13 ng/dL.
CRP also may be an indicator for a wide range of disease processes and
should not be interpreted without a complete clinical history. When
using CRP to assess risk of cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease,

resulting in tissue injury, infections or inflammation, which may cause
elevated CRP levels, should also be considered when interpreting results.
