Part Descriptions

LP15755-9   Alpha-1-acid glycoprotein
Alpha-1-acid glycoprotein (AGP or orosomucoid ORM), is an acute phase reactant glycoprotein found in a number of conditions, and considered a natural anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory agent, particularly with respect to its anti-neutrophil and anti-complement activity. Serum levels increase in response to systemic tissue injury, inflammation or infection. Expression of the AGP gene is regulated through major mediators (glucocorticoids and a cytokine network involving mostly interleukin-1β (IL-1β), tumour necrosis factor-α (TNFα), interleukin-6 and IL-6 related cytokines). [PMID:11058758] AGP is used to monitor acute-phase proteins related to inflammatory conditions like RA, Crohn's disease, injuries, burns, malignant neoplasms, and inflammation or infection conditions of unknown etiology. Low serum concentrations may be due to chronic liver diseases or to increased excretion of the protein as in nephritic syndrome.(Lab Partner1)[PMID:11058758] Source: Regenstrief LOINC, PMID: 11058758

LP7238-1   Body fld
The LOINC "Body fld" System represents body fluids other than serum, plasma, blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid. When a LOINC term with the System "Body fld" is used, the specific specimen source or body fluid type should be reported elsewhere with the result. Where more specific terms for pleural, peritoneal, synovial fluid, etc. exist, we encourage you to use the more specific terms. In contrast to "Body fld", the System "Asp" in LOINC represents the fluid withdrawn during an aspiration procedure from an abnormal collection of fluid, such as from an abscess or cyst. "Asp" is used for abnormal fluid collections that are aspirated, while "Body fld" is used for named body fluids, such as synovial fluid or peritoneal fluid, that are not inherently pathologic.
