Stress associated with higher salivary CRP levels in infants

Association between early life adversity and inflammation during infancy. Author: David J, et al. (2017), Dev Psychobiol. Early life adversity is associated with adult elevations of inflammatory markers such as circulating levels of C-reactive protein (CRP). Few studies have measured inflammation or its association with psychosocial stress during infancy. Existing evidence suggests that early adversity […]
