Study of liver disease condition by estimation of acute phase proteins
Dr. Naresh Kumar Jha
It is identified that the acute phase protein levels augmented throughout the inflammatory reactions such as trauma, aseptic necrosis and infections. Hence the present study was planned to assess the levels of acute phase protein synthesis in the liver disorders like cirrhosis of liver and infective hepatitis. The 50 liver diseases patients were enrolled in to the study. All the patients are informed consents. The liver diseases include the liver cirrhosis, jaundice, infective hepatitis. The age group of the patients are from 22-55 years. 25 normal healthy groups were also selected as control to study the levels of acute phase proteins in them. Ceruloplasmin and Serum transferrin is estimated from the pathological findings. In the present study acute phase proteins like ceruloplasmin and transferrin are increased in concentration indicates the liver disorders with tissue lesions accompanied by inflammatory process. From the above study it can be concluded that the acute phase proteins in liver disorders plays important role.
