Abstract

C-reactive protein (CRP) is an important indicator and player in inflammatory diseases such as stroke. It may be involved in the earliest stages of stroke. Monitoring the levels of CRP may help in the prevention and treatment of stroke. Statin drugs may be useful in lowering CRP levels and the incidence of stroke.
