Abstract

Background: Alpha-1-acid glycoprotein (AGP) is an acute phase protein that increases in concentration in infectious and inflammatory conditions. The serum and peritoneal fluid concentrations of AGP may be useful in the diagnosis of feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), a lethal disease of cats....

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to assess the reliability of body cavity fluid protein determination by refractometry. We compared the protein concentration of 25 body cavity fluids as determined by 2 Goldberg type hand-held refractometers with results obtained by the biuret method. Published charts...

Abstract

Peritoneal and pleural effusions from 110 cats, presented over 5 years, were examined for anti-feline coronavirus (anti-FCoV) direct immunofluorescence, cytology and protein content to determine the use of these methods for diagnosis of feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) using this fluid alone....

Abstract

Background: Pleural and peritoneal effusion is a common clinical finding in feline practice. Determination of fluid albumin (ALB) and globulin (GLOB) concentrations in addition to total protein (TP) concentration can be helpful in diagnosing or ruling out certain diseases in cats, especially feline ...

Abstract

A 1.5-year-old domestic shorthair cat was examined because of vomiting and icterus. Clinicopathological abnormalities included high alanine transaminase, alkaline phosphatase and γ-glutamyltransferase activities and high total bilirubin concentration. During abdominal ultrasonography, the left limb ...
