Abstract

Many recent studies have shown a relationship between plasma C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations and risk of cardiovascular disease. However, the intraindividual variation in plasma CRP concentrations is large. Use of plasma CRP measurement in individual patients is like]y to result in many being misclassified in their risk status. Use of repeated measurements is not a practical solution to this problem.
