C-reactive protein: a useful marker for guiding duration of antibiotic therapy in suspected neonatal septicaemia? Al Zwaini, E.J. (2009)The study aimed to determine whether serum C-reactive protein [CRP] levels can be used to identify when antibiotics can safely be discontinued in cases of suspected neonatal septicaemia. Neonates with suspected neonatal septicaemia treated at a hospital in Al Ramadi city, Iraq, in 2005 had serum CRP and blood cultures [the gold standard] done at admission and at 48 hours, 4 days and 6 days after starting treatment. Of the 55 neonates, CRP was </= 6 mg/L at 48 hours in 37 [67.3%] and antibiotics could be stopped in 32 [82.5%], i.e. when blood ...
Prognostic value of infection and inflammation markers for late cardiac events in an Iranian sample Sarrafzadegan, N.; Rezaporian, P.; Kaypour, M.; Mohseni, M.; Sadeghi, M.; Asgary, S.; Sabet, B. (2008)We evaluated the serum levels of IgG antibodies to Helicobacter pylori, Chlamydia pneumonia and cytomegalovirus and the level of the inflammatory markers C-reactive protein and fibrinogen in 57 patients with acute coronary syndrome, 65 with unstable angina, 60 with stable angina and 44 healthy controls, and whether these markers were associated with cardiac instability 6 months after admission. There was a significant increased risk of late coronary events [cardiac death or readmission with acute coronary events] associated with seropositivity ...
Yilmaz, N.; Cicek, H.K.; Celik, A.; Meram, I.; Kocabas, R.; Davutoglu, V. (2007)We evaluated 3 new markers for coronary artery disease [CAD] [bilirubin, total homocysteine [t-Hcy] and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein [hs-CRP]] in 319 patients with chest pains divided into 2 groups based on coronary angiography: CAD group [n = 262] and non-CAD group [n = 57]. A control group consisted of 50 healthy subjects. t-Hcy had the highest diagnostic value for diagnosis of angiographically documented patients; bilirubin had the lowest. The sensitivities and specificities [based on ROC curves] of bilirubin, hs-CRP and t-Hcy were ...
