    Description

    The Home Inflammation Test provides a fast indication of the presents of Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins in the blood.

    Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins have several roles, including the transport of cholesterol to the liver for secretion into the bile and the recruitment of immune cells to inflammatory sites. Understanding SAA levels in your blood can help with the further diagnosis of inflammation in the body.

    Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins in the blood can be an indicator that further investigation of inflammation is required.

    Simple & Easy

    The easy-to-use testing kits are mailed immediately on purchase and should reach you within 1-3 business days. In the box, there will be full instructions provided on how to complete the sample in a fast and pain-free manner. Just a few spots of blood are required using a pin-prick lancet within the kit and you will receive results from the lateral flow cassette.

    Perfect for

    Testing Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins can provide valuable early warning signs of current or persistent inflammation and allow quicker additional diagnostics.

     

    What is tested in the Home Persistent Inflammation Test

    Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins are produced predominantly by the liver and are usually in response to inflammation in the body.

    The raised Serum amyloid A (SAA) gives an indicator of inflammation in the body and is especially useful for evaluating disease severity and monitoring disease activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and secondary amyloidosis.

    An SSA level higher than 10μIU/mL indicates a higher than normal level and a positive test.

    The test provides results based on a Positive/Higher or Negative/Normal basis. Positive results can then be used to request a secondary test or consult further medical advice.

    Note: You will require a method of timing the process.

    Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins are a family of apolipoproteins associated with high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in plasma.

    Different isoforms of SAA are expressed constitutively (constitutive SAAs) at different levels or in response to inflammatory stimuli (acute phase SAAs).

    These proteins are produced predominantly by the liver (1). Acute-phase serum amyloid A proteins (A-SAAs) are secreted during the acute phase of inflammation.

    These proteins have several roles, including the transport of cholesterol to the liver for secretion into the bile, the recruitment of immune cells to inflammatory sites, and the induction of enzymes that degrade the extracellular matrix.

    Serum amyloid A (SAA) is also an acute-phase marker that responds rapidly. It has been suggested that SAA levels correlate better with disease activity in early inflammatory joint disease than do ESR and CRP.

    Although largely produced by hepatocytes, more recent studies show that SAA is produced by adipocytes as well, and its serum concentration is associated with body mass index (2,3).
