Evaluation of the Relationship between C-Reactive Protein and Prostate Cancer

In the last decade, accumulating evidence has supported Virchow's hypothesis that cancer and inflammation are linked. Many investigators have demonstrated that the presence of a systemic inflammatory response, as evidenced by an elevated C-reactive protein(CRP) level or elevated interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels, are associated with a poor outcome in patients with many types of cancer, including prostate cancer.
