Acute phase reactant proteins as aids to monitoring disease


, : Acute phase reactant proteins as aids to monitoring disease. Investigative & Cell Pathology 2(4): 293-301

The plasma acute phase reactant proteins [APRP] are a group mainly consisting of glycosialated proteins, whose levels rise in response to a wide variety of injuries. This review discusses how by considering several APRPs coincidentally the pattern of change can have a discriminant function which can be used alone or to enhance other biochemical tests, especially in the monitoring of [human] diseases such as cancer, inflammation and connective tissue diseases.
