The present study aimed to investigate the possibility of using Creactive
protein (CRP) and the level of CRP in serum sample as a marker
for patients with poisoning thyroid gland disease. In addition, the
relationship between inflammation and poisoning thyroid gland. About 21
of serum samples were examined from patients with poisoning thyroid gland
(aged between 14 and 60 years old). Qualitative test was done to detect the
presence of CRP in the patient’s serum. The qualitative test showed that
21(100%) patients with poisoning thyroid gland give positive result to CRP.
The HPLC analysis done to determine the concentration of CRP in patient's
serum. The HPLC analysis showed that the level of concentration for CRP
in serum between (6.4-9.49mg/l). According to the results of the present,
the significant changes in the levels of CRP for the patients with thyroid
disorders observed in current study confirm that inflammation has an
important role on pathogenesis of thyroid dysfunctions regardless of their
thyroid dysfunction type. As well as the present study shown that, the CRP
is a useful marker for patients with poisoning thyroid gland.
