Abstract: The present study was designed to evaluate the association of inflammatory marker C-reactive protein (CRP) alone and in combination with lipid profile in the prognosis of coronary artery disease (CAD) since the cardio vascular disease (CVD) is considered to be a multifactorial disease driven by inflammatory reactions. One hundred and fifty patients were recruited for the study, of which, 75 belongs to control and 75 were test group. For the entire study population CRP and lipid profile were measured. Among the patients with complication (test group), there was a significant elevation in the levels of CRP and lipid profile than the control. It was also found that a combination of measurement of CRP with total cholesterol (TC) or low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol testing may proven to be even a better marker of risk response in patients with CAD.
