CRP (C Reactive Protein)

CRP is produced mainly in the liver, and is stored in various tissues throughout the body.

It is normally present in the blood in only small amounts. 

In response to any inflammatory stimulus (trauma, infection, autoimmune reactions, etc.), CRP is released and the blood levels will rise.
