Diagnostic Considerations:

+ C-Reactive Protein

CRP is a calcium-binding pentameric proetine. It consists of 5 identical 23-kDa subunits that are non-covelently linked. It is mainly produced in the hepatocytes following activation of several key cytokines (IL 1, IL6, TNF-a).

Normal CRP levels are below 1mg/L, but will be increased during states of inflammation and atherosclerotic lesions.

+ Homocysteine

Homocysteine is believed to be a major contributing factor to the development of atherosclerosis. it appears to be the result of a homocysteinylation of lipoproteins which increases the atherogenicity and cytotoxicity on the endothilial tissue. Thus, testing for concentrations of homocystein is a useful metric for assessing the liklihood of atherosclerosis.
