Why measure C-reactive protein?
A significantly increased CRP result may indicate the need for immediate antibiotic treatment. The CRP level decreases rapidly in response to effective therapy. A normal or moderately increased CRP may support a diagnosis of viral or self-limiting infection, which provides valuable information to prevent unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions.
