Human C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is an important biomarker for predicting of future cardiovascular events, such as heart attack and stroke (Koenig et al., 1999, Jenny et al., 2007, Kabagambe et al. 2011). CRP is an acute phase protein produced by the liver. It is a member of the pentraxin family of proteins with five identical nonglycosylated subunits of 206 amino acids each (m.w. 23 kDa) (Agrawal et al., 2009).

Among other markers of inflammation, CRP has shown the strongest association with cardiovascular events (Marsik et al., 2008, Kones et al., 2010). Clinical studies demonstrated that coronary mortality among patients with unstable angina and elevated CRP is significantly higher comparing with the patients without elevated CRP. It is an important biomarker for detecting individuals at high risk of plaque rapture.
