She explains the role of CRP in the acute phase response
, its connection to atherogenesis, the effects of statin therapy in lowering levels of CRP and reducing cardiac events, using CRP as a measure of outcome in patients with severe unstable angina, and the possibility of a connection between elevated levels of CRP and cardiac risk in women on postmenopausal hormone therapy.
In Figure 3 the phase response
is shown using the same antennas as before but with the transmitting antenna's axial ratio restored to a value better than and closer to that of the AUT.
Similarly, each of the eight delta-sigma DAC outputs provides a 3rd Order Bessel filter for shaping of each output waveform while ensuring a linear phase response
If the time delay remains the same for all frequencies, the filter has a linear phase response
. The advantage of linear phase is that the relative phases between the different frequency components remains the same thereby preserving the shape of the input waveform.
Discussion: Data indicate clearance is inversely related to the acute phase response
(as the inflammatory process resolves individual clearance improves).
Although the acute phase response
is non-specific and on its own has no diagnostic significance, the sensitivity, speed and dynamic range of the CRP response to most forms of infection, inflammation and tissue injury combine to make it an exceptionally useful objective index of disease activity and response to therapy .
Taking (1) and (2) into consideration, the phase response
of the filters can be calculated as follows, respectively:
As reported in , manipulation of the radiation pattern of a horn antenna by using the amplitude and phase response
of an AFSS proved to be available.
These observations reflect the generally pervading acute phase response
in these patients, which is envisaged to be due to the underlying disease process with its varied pathophysiologic, biochemical, and metabolic aberrations.
