VMRD - Serum Amyloid A Test

Early identification of infection or systemic inflammation is challenging, and initial clinical signs are often subtle. Serum amyloid A (SAA) is a valuable tool as it is rapidly responsive to clinical changes. Virtually undetectable in normal horses, it increases within 6-12 hours in acute inflammation and peaks at 1000-fold baseline values – far quicker and more dramatic than fibrinogen or WBC count. As inflammation improves, it begins dropping within 12-24 hours.This dynamic nature of SAA makes it an ideal marker for evaluating disease severity and monitoring progression or resolution of illness, including response to treatment.
