AbstractFull Text

Serum amyloid A (SAA) is an acute phase protein that is utilized as an inflammatory marker for cats. Since no feline-specific reagents are available in clinical laboratories to measure SAA, human SAA reagents have been used in many veterinary laboratories. In the present study, we developed a new...

AbstractFull Text

Serum concentrations of acute phase proteins can provide valuable diagnostic information in the detection and monitoring of disease. The available information on the acute phase response in cats with anaemia is limited. The aim of this study was to retrospectively evaluate serum concentrations of...
