Abstract

C-reactive protein levels in children of patients with and without coronary heart disease Background: Coronary heart disease (CHD) has become the main cause of death worldwide, with atherosclerosis which is a chronic inflammation as the hiden background. CRP (C-reactive protein), a serum inflammation marker, appear in coronary heart disease. So for, the studies about the relation of CRP and CHD had been conducted, but the condition of the CRP serum level in children of CHD patients still rarely be evaluated. The aims to analyse the means CRP levels in children of patients with or without CHD, and to find the influence of CHD patients to the children’s CRP level after controlled by body mass index and lipid profile. Methods: A cross sectional approach to 20 blood specimens from each group, children of patients with and without CHD. The serum CRP levels means were measured twice in range of 2 weeks, using hs-CRP PETIA technique and analysed with Mann-Whitney test and logistic regression. Results: Median CRP levels in children of CHD parents was 2.15 mg/L, which was different from children without CHD parent (1.48 mg/L which was p=0.001). The proportion of parents with CHD to high CRP level in their own children 87%. Logistic regression analysis shows that parents with CHD was not a determinant to high CRP level (p=0.172; 95% CI=0.487-55.821). Conclusions: The CRP of level of children whose parents have CHD is higher than those with parents without CHD.
