Which of the following statements about inflammatory markers is INCORRECT?

I. C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein produced by the liver in response to inflammation, and its levels can be used to predict future cardiovascular events.
II. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a cytokine produced by macrophages and other cells in response to inflammation, and it can stimulate the production of other cytokines.
III. Serum amyloid A (SAA) is a protein produced by hepatocytes in response to pro-inflammatory cytokines, and it can promote atherosclerosis and destabilize atherosclerotic plaques.
IV. Ferritin is a glycoprotein produced by the liver in response to acute inflammation, and its plasma concentration can increase in infectious, inflammatory, and metabolic syndromes.
V. Procalcitonin is a precursor of the hormone calcitonin, and its levels can be used to differentiate bacterial infections from viral infections.
a) Only statement I is incorrect.

Alternativa correta: b) Only statement II is incorrect. A afirmação II está incorreta, pois o Interleucina-6 (IL-6) é uma citocina produzida por macrófagos e outras células em resposta à inflamação, e pode estimular a produção de outras citocinas.
