Abstract

C REACTIVE PROTEIN, BLOOD PRESSURE AND BMI IN BREAST CANCER SUBJECTS

*Oluboyo A. O., Oluboyo B. O. and Odewusi O. O.

ABSTRACT

Background: Breast cancer is a major cause of mortality and
morbidity in women and C reactive protein is predictive of a poor
prognosis of breast cancer. Objectives: The study evaluated the levels
of C reactive protein (CRP), body mass index (BMI) and blood
pressure in breast cancer subjects. Methods: A total of 100 women
comprising 50 breast cancer subjects and 50 women without the
history of cancer were investigated. C-reactive protein was evaluated
using Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kit from
Diagnostic Automation Inc. BMI and Blood pressure were also
monitored using standard procedures. Results: The results showed that
CRP was significantly increased (p<0.05) in breast cancer subjects
compared with people without breast cancer. The levels of diastolic
and systolic blood pressure were significantly (p<0.05) raised in the breast cancer subject
compared with the control. Conclusion: It was concluded that the level of CRP, blood
pressure and BMI should be monitored in breast cancer subjects so that adequate care can be
given to the subjects.

Keywords: breast cancer, CRP, BMI, Blood pressure.
