  • Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is an inexpensive and simple test for evaluating the infl ammatory or acute response. The ESR is a useful test in clinical practice as an indicator of infl ammation, infection, trauma or malignant disease. The ESR can also be an important prognostic factor in non-infl ammatory conditions, such as coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure and prostate cancer. There are several methods for measuring the ESR, but the International Committee on… CONTINUE READING
