The AHA/CDC Scientific Statement Summary1,2

hsCRP is a global indicator of future vascular events in adults without any previous history of cardiovascular disease (CVD), with acceptable precision levels down to or below 0.3 mg/L

  • hsCRP enhances risk assessment and therapeutic outcomes in primary CVD prevention
  • hsCRP is particularly advantageous for assessing the risk in patients with
                o Framingham 10-year risk scores of 10%-20% and/or
                o LDL levels of <160 mg/dL
  • hsCRP acts as an independent marker for evaluating the possibility of recurrent cardiac events, such as myocardial infarction or restenosis, after percutaneous coronary intervention
