The most common underlying cause of acquired cardiovascular disease in developed countries is Kawasaki disease (KD), a systemic vasculitis. The most serious and common consequence of KD is the growth of coronary artery involvement, however therapy with intravenous gammaglobulin can minimized this issue. There are various limitations of using intravenous gammaglobulin which further make researchers to look for alternative medicine. It has been found that marine natural products and compounds from natural sources are having cardioprotective nature. The present research aims at filling the gap with computational analysis to explore the target ability y of Xyloketal B on human C-Reactive Protein having vital role in Kawasaki disease. It has been found that the marine compound has the ability to inhibit CRP with considerable negative biding energy of-8.47Kcal/mol. The present stdy may aid researchers to explore new invention having the potential for enzymatic and chemical modification of the molecule for the management of KD. Patients having a history of coronary artery disease, involvement are encouraged to have long-term follow-up.
