Acute Phase Proteins as Early Non-Specific Biomarkers of Human and Veterinary Diseases

Edited by Francisco Veas

Montpellier University, UM and French Research Institute for Development, IRD

The two volumes of Acute Phase Proteins book consist of chapters that give a large panel of fundamental and applied knowledge on one of the major elements of the inflammatory process during the acute phase response, i.e., the acute phase proteins expression and functions that regulate homeostasis. We have organized this book in two volumes - the first volume, mainly containing chapters on structure, biology and functions of APP, the second volume discussing different uses of APP as diagnostic tools in human and veterinary medicine.
