Abstract

It has been observed that after any injury which is acute and also in the setting of inflammation or infection, the synthesis and secretion of C-reactive protein (CRP) rises within a few hours. The current study monitors CRP in patients presenting with sepsis and attempts to prove that it is one of the most reliable tests in determining the resolution and predicting the outcome.
