Hello. Crp is c reactive protein...it is used as a tool to indicate acute or chronic infection, tissue necrosis,ischaemia,metabolic syndrome,smoking,post surgery, obesity etc...in your case it's done to check for inflammatory condition like vasculitis...c anca and p anca negative helps to rule out vasculitis.
