Acute phase protein (APP) is a type of special protein closely related to infection inflammation. In recent years, a large number of studies have shown that multiple positive and negative APPs, including C-reactive protein, serum amyloid A, procalcitonin, haptoglobin, alpha1 acid glycoprotein, ceruloplasmin, fibrinogen, prealbumin, leptin, albumin, and plasma fibronectin, are significantly correlated to infectious inflammation and that this method is more accurate and reliable than somatic cell test, erythrocyte sedimentation rate test, enzyme activity and content change test, and the like. Therefore, APP could be used as an infectious inflammation marker.
