Abbott offers a variety of diagnostic testing options to detect the presence of infection, inflammation, malnutrition or other autoimmune disease. These test results can assist health care professionals in evaluating better treatment options for patients.
Functional classification of proteins is useful in understanding the changes that occur in disease:
- Proteins of immune defense - Immunoglobulins for the elimination of antigen
- Acute phase protein response - Proteins associated with inflammation
- Transport proteins - Proteins used to bind and transport
- Proteins of blood clotting - Proteins involved in forming clots and acting very closely with the complement system
- Tissue derived proteins -Proteins shed into the blood during cell membrane turnover or cell death
- Oncofetal proteins - Proteins produced by tumors and/or during fetal life
For example, the complement system is a set of blood proteins that are integral in the destruction of viruses and bacteria, and is a natural part of the immune system. In addition, complement testing can be ordered to help diagnosis and monitor the activity of autoimmune diseases such as lupus.
