hsCRP is just CRP

The authors write about measuring high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP). This usage perpetuates the misleading impression that hsCRP is different in some way from the CRP that we have long been familiar with. hsCRP is not a unique analyte. High-sensitivity does not refer to a protein, but to a sensitive assay. The authors should avoid perpetuating this widely held misconception.
