BACKGROUND The distribution of C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations among children and young adults in the US is not known at present. METHODS We used data from 3348 US children and young adults 3-19 years of age who participated in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1999-2000, to describe the distribution of CRP concentrations, based on results obtained with a high-sensitivity latex-enhanced turbidimetric assay. RESULTS The range of CRP concentrations was 0.1-90.8 mg… CONTINUE READING
