From: Serum levels of autoantibodies against C-reactive protein correlate with renal disease activity and response to therapy in lupus nephritis

   Anti-CRP-positive 13 3
   Anti-CRP-negative 7 11
   Relative risk 2.09 (1.12 to 3.90)  
Anti-dsDNA-negative   
   Anti-CRP-positive 1 0
   Anti-CRP-negative 1 2
   Relative risk 3.00 (0.61 to 14.86)
