Acute phase proteins in cattle and swine

Written by

  • Acute phase proteins determination in milk is a diagnostic tool in the control of mastitis
APP cattle swineThe major acute phase proteins (APPs) in cattle are haptoglobin (Hp) and serum amyloid A (SAA), and in swine, are Hp, SAA, C-reactive protein (CRP), and Pig major acute phase protein (Pig-MAP). Many methodologic assays are presently available to measure these parameters, which are still being improved to increase their specificity, sensitivity, user-friendliness, and economic availability. In cattle, the main applications are the diagnosis and monitoring of fre...

Hematology and plasma biochemistry reference values of juvenile undulate rays

Written by

  • Blood samples from 43 undulate rays were analyzed for hematology and plasma biochemistry
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         Despite the paucity of published literature on elasmobranch hematology and biochemistry, great interspecific diversity has been observed.Blood samples from 43 undulate rays (Raja undulata) (23 males, 20 females) hatched and raised at Oceanogràfic Aquarium, were analyzed for hematology and plasma biochemistry. Animals were divided into two age groups: 1 yr old (28 skates) and 2 yr old (15 skates). Al...

Postprandial changes in serum biochemistry analytes in healthy cats

Written by

  • Postprandial serum concentrations of BUN, phosphorus, bicarbonate and chloride differed at multiple time points
Once day headerThe aim of this study was to evaluate the magnitude, duration and significance of postprandial changes to select serum biochemistry analytes in healthy adult cats in the 12 h period after a meal.Nine adult research cats fed commercial food were included. Blood samples were taken after a 12 h fast (hour 0), cats were offered and consumed a meal, and postprandial samples were obtained over a 12 h period starting 2 h after the baseline blood draw (hour...

The utility of bile acids for the diagnosis of liver disease in exotic animals

Written by

  • Bile acid concentrations should be interpreted in context with other liver function parameters
acidi biliari esoticiThe synthesis of bile acids occurs during the degradation of cholesterol in hepatocytes. Thus, this analyte is expected to be a sensitive indicator of hepatocellular dysfunction or alterations in portal circulation. Bile acids can be quantified via an enzymatic reaction to a highly conserved moiety across species....
