Inflammatory markers, also known as acute phase reactants, are commonly measured in clinical practice and include C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and procalcitonin (PCT).
ESR, CRP and PV blood tests are used to detect an increase in protein in the blood and are used as markers of inflammation.
Normal values for ESR, CRP and PV vary, and these tests are used to detect inflammation and other conditions.
Although there are many inflammatory markers, also known as acute phase reactants, those most commonly measured in clinical practice (and discussed in this topic) are C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and procalcitonin (PCT).
