The associative links between base concentration of C-reactive protein (hsCRP), levels of serum antiendotoxin antibodies of different classes and endotoxin-binding capacity of monocytes and granulocytes of healthy volunteers were investigated by cluster analysis. In the group of healthy volunteers with increased base concentration of hsCRP in blood the levels of serum antiendotoxin antibodies of different classes and endotoxin-binding capacity of monocytes and granulocytes were reduced. Thus, the disbalance of detoxification and clearance of endotoxin by humoral and cellular mechanisms can be one of the possible causes of development of low intensity inflammation and increase of hsCRP concentration in blood.
Key words: endotoxin, antibodies, receptor for endotoxin, C-reactive protein.
