Sample text

The enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay (ELISA) uses coated plates to form antigen–antibody complexes. These complexes are detected by addition of secondary antibodies labeled with an enzyme that, when mixed with a substrate, produces color that is measured by spectrophotometry. Because the CRP is a stable serum protein and its measurement is not affected by other serum components, it tends to be less variable than the ESR. The CRP is affected by age and gender, as is the ESR (5). 2 mg/ dL are considered normal and levels >1 mg/dL are deemed consistent with inflammation, but there is considerable laboratory-to-laboratory variation.

Although CRP and ESR values tend to correspond with each other, some patients’ disease processes appear to correlate better with one measure or the other. Method Specific antibodies to CRP allow direct quantification by a variety of means. Nephelometry uses antibodies to bind target proteins and then measures the scatter of light by antigen–antibody complexes. The enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay (ELISA) uses coated plates to form antigen–antibody complexes. These complexes are detected by addition of secondary antibodies labeled with an enzyme that, when mixed with a substrate, produces color that is measured by spectrophotometry.
