It may be suggested that disease duration/recurrence could affect acute phase response
It could be concluded that the higher serum levels of IgG, IgM, C1-INH and C3 activator in SCA patients with osteomyelitis coupled with the strong positive correlation found between the traditional markers of infection (elevated ESR and leukocytosis) and IgM, C1-INH and C3 activator reinforces their being classed as acute phase response
8) Decreased vitamin A levels have been linked to the incidence of diarrhoea in burn patients but it must be remembered that retinol-binding protein is decreased during the acute phase response
and supplementation may result in toxicity.
All three cytokines are part of the acute phase response
and activate the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.
Acute phase response
in exercise: interaction of age and vitamin E on neutrophils and muscle enzyme release.
We will start by considering the more traditional and cheaper "mainstays" of rheumatic tests: the ESR and CRP, which form part of the acute phase response
