ESR, CRP, sample stability ABSTRACT Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a very old and widely used test in a number of infectious, neoplastic, autoimmune and other diseases. In the literature, the argue on the use of ESR and its replacement with more advanced biomarkers, such as the C-reactive protein (CRP), which are less affected by gender, age, protein and cellular blood factors, is still going on. In practice, the combination of both biomarkers is still in use. The question of sample… Expand

Erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein: how best to use them in clinical practice.
TLDR
ESR and CRP can be complementary to good history taking and physical examination in the diagnosis and monitoring of inflammatory conditions and are useful in diagnosis as well as in monitoring responses to therapy in acute inflammatory conditions, such as acute infections. Expand
Erythrocyte sedimentation rate: use of fresh blood for quality control.
TLDR
A procedure for achieving the daily quality control of ESR is described and evaluated for establishing the limits of agreement between working and reference methods and for monitoring its reproducibility over time. Expand
C-reactive protein and erythrocyte sedimentation rate: Continuing role for erythrocyte sedimentation rate
TLDR
ESR has value in detecting inflammatory disorders that may not be obvious by clinical examination or CRP results and has a particularly useful role in patients with suspected bone lesions and osteomyelitis. Expand
Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate Measurement Using as a Rapid Alternative to the Westergren Method
TLDR
Using capillary tube and capillary blood sample (micro ESR) appears to be a faster, cheaper, more reliable, and precise tool for ESR measurement in the ED, and the results have acceptable correlation with conventional ESR, especially at 20 minutes of measurement. Expand
C-reactive protein and erythrocyte sedimentation rate discordance: frequency and causes in adults.
TLDR
A retrospective cohort study to clarify the frequency and causes of CRP/ESR discordance in adults and provides information to physicians who order these 2 tests together and receive discordant results. Expand
Utility of erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein for the diagnosis of giant cell arteritis.
TLDR
CRP is a more sensitive marker than ESR for a positive TAB that is diagnostic of giant cell arteritis, and there may be clinical utility in obtaining both tests in the evaluation of patients with suspected GCA. Expand
Similar erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein sensitivities at the onset of septic arthritis, osteomyelitis, acute rheumatic fever
TLDR
It is concluded that the CRP does not rise earlier than the ESR (their sensitivities are similar) and previously published conclusions are dependent on arbitrary thresholds. Expand
Evaluation of an automated erythrocyte sedimentation rate analyzer as compared to the Westergren manual method in measurement of erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
TLDR
The fully automated system Monitor 100® for ESR measurement tends to underestimate the manual ESR readings, Hence it is recommended that a correction factor be applied for the range of ESR values while using this equipment. Expand
Efficacy of erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein level in determining periprosthetic hip infections.
TLDR
ESR and CRP level are useful in the diagnosis of periprosthetic hip infections and ordering these tests concurrently reduces the chance of false-negative results, according to a prospective group of patients who underwent revision total hip arthroplasty. Expand
Sensitivity of erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein for the exclusion of septic arthritis in emergency department patients.
TLDR
ESR and CRP have sensitivities of >90% for septic arthritis, but only when low thresholds are used; further study is required to determine the clinical usefulness of ESR andCRP testing. Expand
