Y. X. Tie, Fu, Y. Y., Xu, Z., Peng, Y., Tie, Y. X., Fu, Y. Y., Xu, Z., and Peng, Y., Relationship between C-reactive protein levels and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

This study aims to determine the relationship between C-reactive protein levels and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). We recruited 30 OSAS patients into the observation group (OSAS group), and subdivided them into mild, moderate and severe groups according to the apnea hypopnea index. In addition, 20 normal individuals were included in the control group. Plasma CRP levels of two groups were measured. As compared with the control group, the CRP levels in the OSAS group were significantly increased (P

Values for serum procalcitonin, C-reactive protein, and soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 in predicting survival of patients with early-onset stroke-associated pneumonia

J. Xie, Zhang, X. H., and Zhu, W. Y., Values for serum procalcitonin, C-reactive protein, and soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 in predicting survival of patients with early-onset stroke-associated pneumonia, vol. 14, pp. 4716-4723, 2015.

We examined the value of serum procalcitonin (PCT), C-reactive protein (CRP), soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 (sTREM-1) for predicting the survival of patients with early-onset stroke associated pneumonia (EOP). A total of 207 stroke patients were enrolled, and 91 developed EOP. Upon admission, serum PCT, CRP, sTREM-1 levels, clinical pulmonary infection score, and Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II score were all significantly higher in patients with EOP than in those without EOP (P

Disease indicators for sepsis and analysis of sepsis treatment in children using the continuous blood purification technique

J. P. Liu, Wang, X. W., and Qie, L. P., Disease indicators for sepsis and analysis of sepsis treatment in children using the continuous blood purification technique, vol. 14, pp. 5685-5693, 2015.

We analyzed disease severity, inflammation markers, and dynamic changes in cartilage glycoprotein 39 (YKL-40) and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in children with sepsis before and after treatment with continuous blood purification (CBP). Study participants were 30 children with severe sepsis who were cured from the disease (experimental group) in the Children’s Serious Disease Center of In­ner Mongolia People’s Hospital between June 2012 and October 2013. Symptomatic CBP treatment was performed after disease severity scor­ing.

Plasma resistin, associated with single nucleotide polymorphism -420, is correlated with C-reactive protein in Chinese Han patients with spontaneous basal ganglia hemorrhage

X. - Q. Dong, Du, Q., Yu, W. - H., Zhang, Z. - Y., Zhu, Q., Che, Z. - H., Wang, H., Chen, J., Yang, S. - B., and Wen, J. - F., Plasma resistin, associated with single nucleotide polymorphism -420, is correlated with C-reactive protein in Chinese Han patients with spontaneous basal ganglia hemorrhage, vol. 11, pp. 1841-1850, 2012.

We examined a possible relationship -420C>G SNP of the resistin gene with plasma resistin and C-reactive protein concentrations in intracerebral hemorrhage. Three hundred and forty-four Chinese Han patients with intracerebral hemorrhage and 344 age- and gender-matched healthy controls were included in our study. Plasma resistin and C-reactive concentrations were measured and SNP -420C>G was genotyped. The genotype frequencies in controls and patients were not significantly different (P = 0.672).

Common variants in the CRP gene are associated with serum C-reactive protein levels and body mass index in healthy individuals in Mexico

E. Flores-Alfaro, Fernández-Tilapa, G., Salazar-Martínez, E., Cruz, M., Illades-Aguiar, B., and Parra-Rojas, I., Common variants in the CRP gene are associated with serum C-reactive protein levels and body mass index in healthy individuals in Mexico, vol. 11, pp. 2258-2267, 2012.

Variants in the C-reactive protein (CRP) gene have been found to be associated with various phenotypic traits. We evaluated the effect of four SNPs in the CRP gene on serum levels of protein and body mass index (BMI) in 150 unrelated Mexican subjects from 18 to 25 years old, without hypertension, non-overweight, and without inflammatory diseases, non-smoking and non-consumers of alcohol. Subjects were measured for BMI, waist circumference, blood pressure, and serum glucose and triglycerides. The identification of SNPs was performed by PCR-RFLP.
