dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: The value of C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in the differential diagnosis of pelvic infection and ectopic pregnancy, in the staging of carcinoma of the cervix, and after necrotizing irradiation for tumour was assessed. CRP was measured using a sensitive magnetizable solid-phase immunoradiometric assay. There was an obvious difference in CRP levels between patients with ectopic pregnancies and acute pelvic infections, but CRP levels failed to differentiate between stages IIB and IIIB carcinoma of the cervix, the majority of patients not having a significant acute-phase response. During radiotherapy there was wide variation and substantial individual differences in CRP levels which could have been caused by undiagnosed infective complications.en_ZA
