Abstract

Objective: Pregnancy-associated plasma protein A (PAPP-A), a metalloproteinase that regulates insulinlike growth factor-1 bioavailability in vitro, has been suggested to play an active role in the pathophysiology of several conditions involving inflammatory responses. We investigated the values of PAPP-A and high sensitive CRP (hsCRP) levels in chronic subdural haematoma (CSDH) patients and healthy controls.
