Although CRP has been proven to have multiple proinflammatory and pro-atherogenic properties in experimental settings [19], findings from a recent study using a Mendelian randomization approach have questioned whether CRP actually has a causal role in atherogenesis [29]. Nevertheless, because increased levels of CRP have consistently been shown to be associated with an increased CHD risk, CRP remains an established “marker of risk,” and it may indeed contribute to CHD. , smoking cessation, weight loss, and exercise) can also decrease serum CRP levels.

Use of Serum Biomarkers to Improve Cardiovascular Risk Prediction: The Case of CRP C-reactive protein was the first biomarker used to improve CHD risk prediction models, and, therefore, it is currently the most well-studied. Most studies have shown that adding hs-CRP measurements to a CHD risk prediction model only modestly improves the predictive power [84]. However, after adjustments for conventional risk factors have been made, the significance of these improvements, as assessed by changes in the area under the ROC curve, has been questioned [21, 85].
