Page 12 | Abby's Magazine - C-reactive protein (CRP) is manufactured throughout the body, especially by immune cells, the liver, and by adipocytes (fat cells). During the early phase of an inflammatory stimulus (such as an infection or tissue injury) CRP levels rise dramatically. CRP is an incredibly sensitive and robust "marker" of general inflammation. It's used to track the progress of chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, or inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn's disease. In those cases, increased symptoms accompanied by a rise in CRP signals a "flare" of the disease, and indicates the need to provide anti-inflammatory therapy. More recently, however, CRP has been recognized as an active cause of inflammation in addition to simply being a marker of inflammation. This important discovery opened the door for additional ways to fight chronic inflammation. When CRP binds to specific molecules in the body, it participates in rapidly raising the production of inflammatory signaling molecules called cytokines and other inflammatory mediators. This is a healthy function of acute inflammation because it helps speed up the race to the scene of any damage, and quickly destroys invading organisms. However, when CRP rises unchecked, it can contribute to chronic inflammation.
