The scale of E-RPs and C-RPs significantly affects the accuracy of the data completing system.
For instance, if set size of C-RPs is 60% (40% E-TPs size), the accuracy could be over 75%, which is reasonable in terms of a fingerprinting dataset.
In addition to the glucose-lowering effects of the MPCs, there was a direct correlation between reductions in fasting blood glucose levels over time and reductions in C-RP, suggesting that MPC therapy may be cardioprotective in Type 2 diabetic patients.
