Therefore, in this report, we present a patient with AATD with a typical pattern observed in serum protein electrophoresis, which in our opinion could be a surrogate for liver biopsy in similar cases in which liver biopsy could be avoided.
Furthermore, Lolin et al (1994) suggested that immunofix with IgD and IgE antisera should routinely be performed for all patients with a suspected Bence-Jones proteinuria myeloma, irrespective of whether a suspicious band was detected on serum protein electrophoresis or after immunofixation with light chains (9).
This patient's recent weight loss was concerning for underlying systemic disease, so a laboratory work-up including complete blood count, serum protein electrophoresis, cold agglutinins, antinuclear antibody, rheumatoid factor, and cryoglobulins was performed.

The aim of this study was to determine the seasonal influence on the biochemical profile for clinically healthy adult Boa constrictor amarali of both sexes, including the measurement of uric acid, glucose, total protein and cholesterol, and the establishment of reference intervals for serum protein electrophoresis.

The patient was asymptomatic, so other exams were made: Hb--15.6 g/ dL; leukocytes--6,590/[mm.sup.3]; platelets--164,000/[mm.sub.3]; prothrombin time--13,5 seconds (INR--1.1); aspartate aminotransferases (AST)--100U/L; total bilirubin--0.8 mg/dL; total protein--7.6 g/dL (albumin--4.8g/dL); serum protein electrophoresis showed 23.4% gamma globulines (1.8g/dL).

Humoral immunosuppressant activity of aflatoxin ingestion in rabbits measured by response to Mycobacterium bovis antigens using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and serum protein electrophoresis. Mycoses 41(7-8):303-308.
Laboratory tests demonstrated anemia of chronic disease diagnosed by a hematocrit of 25% associated with a low reticulocyte production index, high serum ferritin, and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (91 mm/hr), with polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia and hypoalbuminemia on serum protein electrophoresis. Stool samples were negative for occult blood, and serologic tests showed no Helicobacter pylori antibodies.
