C-reactive protein (CRP) is an acute-phase protein synthesized predominantly by the hepatocytes in response to tissue damage or inflammation. Levels of acute-phase proteins rise rapidly, during infection and after injury. We take up the study to correlate serum CRP levels with other important predictive markers of outcome in COPD. Patient with stable COPD (no exacerbation in the last two months) were taken up for the study. Parameters taken to correlate were age, grade of dyspnea, FEV1. It was found the CRP is negatively correlated with FEV1 and grade of dyspnea but not correlated with age.
