Few associations between high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and environmental factors in 4.5-year-old children

Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, 05/07/2012

The authors found few associations between early environmental farming factors and hsCRP levels, and between hsCRP levels and atopic sensitization in 4.5–year–old children. However, the results suggest that the role played by the environmental factors in low–grade inflammation may differ between sensitized and non–sensitized children.
