Targeting statin therapy for patients with COPD to those with increased systemic inflammation as indicated by elevated hsCRP
levels might improve vascular function, she said in an interview.
But because hsCRP
reflects inflammation, and because HIV-positive people have so many potential inflammation inciters (including HIV itself), the HIV/ heart panel says "the role of hsCRP
in clinical [HIV] practice is less clear" and suggests the need for hsCRP
studies that control for traditional risk factors.

After identifying 647 cases with the proper matched controls, the scientists measured hsCRP
in baseline blood samples.
The mean values hsCRP
and FPG levels were significantly higher in patients with MetS than in controls.
C-reactive protein and specifically hsCRP
measure the same molecule in the blood as mg/L to different degrees of sensitivity (Ridker & Rifai, 2006).
