In the current study, detection of anti-Aspergillus antibodies, Aspergillus antigen, and Aspergillus toxin (fumigaclavine A), protein electrophoresis and measurement of acute-phase protein
concentrations were performed on serum of 18 adult and plasma of 21 juvenile gyr-saker hybrid falcons (Falco rusticolus X Falco cherrug).
The FebriDx test combines the interpretation of both Myxovirus Resistance Protein A (MxA) C an interferon derivative that becomes elevated in the presence of acute viral infection, and C-reactive Protein (CRP) C an acute-phase protein
that is elevated in the presence of bacterial infection.
Overproduction of interleukin-6 has been linked to the principal mediator of the acute-phase protein
responsible for symptoms such as fever, anemia, and arthralgia experienced by patients with cardiac myxomas, and raised serum levels may become undetectable after resection of the neoplasm (2).
Serum amyloid A: an acute-phase protein
involved in tumour pathogenesis.
CRP is an acute-phase protein
produced by the liver.
Classification of systemic amyloidosis AL (light-chain immunoglobulin) Plasma-cell/immunocyte dyscrasia Multiple myeloma AA (serum protein A) Acute-phase protein
produced in response to inflammation Rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, osteomyelitis, tuberculosis, familial Mediterranean fever Gastric carcinoma, renal cell carcinoma, Hodgkin's disease A[beta]2M ([[beta].
synthesis in human hepatoma cells: differential regulation of serum amyloid A (SAA) and haptoglobin by interleukin-1 and interleukin-6.
It becomes even more concentrated in the blood of chickens that are fighting infections, turning out to be a major acute-phase protein
1,3) During ongoing stimulation (chronic infection), positive acute-phase protein
levels remain high compared with normal values and can be used for diagnostic purposes.
5) Thus, the EPH is recommended as a measure of the acute-phase protein
Hp is a positive acute-phase protein
and is characterized by molecular heterogeneity with 3 major phenotypes: Hp 1-1, Hp 2-2, and the heterozygous Hp 2-1 (3).
Among them, an acute-phase protein
, SAA, was substantially increased in 44 sera from 24 SARS patients, in contrast to 72 sera from 51 control patients with different viral or bacterial infections.
