      A study has been conducted to determine the serum protein abnormalities in patients with associated psoriasis and arthritis in order to determine whether any fraction reflects clinical activity of this disease. An attempt has been made to determine the relationship between the severity and duration Cited by: Another test must be used to measure the amount of abnormal Ig in the blood. This test is called serum protein electrophoresis (SPEP) test. Your doctor can use it to confirm certain diagnoses. The Author: Darla Burke.

    Serum protein electrophoresis, SPEP. Protein electrophoresis is a test that measures specific proteins in the blood. The test separates proteins in the blood based on their electrical charge. The protein electrophoresis test is often used to find abnormal substances called M proteins. The presence of M proteins can be a sign of a type of. immunoglobulin called monoclonal protein (M protein). Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) is an asymptomatic condition in which there is a presence of an abnormal M protein in the blood. It is not a blood cancer, and most people with MGUS do not ever develop a blood cancer.

    Protein, total, serum7,28 Normal range: g/dL The level of protein in the blood is measured by a total serum protein test. If the test results show abnormal protein levels, then multiple myeloma, kidney, liver, blood, and other autoimmune diseases may be Size: KB. Multiple Myeloma and Related Serum Protein Disorders is a practical guide to the clinical use of serum and urine electrophoresis and also includes coverage of immunofixation electrophoresis. These techniques are essential in the accurate identification of monoclonal gammopathies and the diagnosis of multiple myeloma and related disorders.

Serum protein electrophoresis is used to identify patients with multiple myeloma and other serum protein disorders. Electrophoresis separates proteins based on their physical properties, and the Cited by: Serum protein electrophoresis is an inexpensive, easy-to-perform screening procedure for initial identification of monoclonal bands.

Monoclonal bands are usually seen in the γ zone but may be seen in proximity of the β band or, rarely, in the α 2 region. Blood is collected in a tube with clot activator.

Protein electrophoresis of the serum and urine detects M protein as a narrow peak (like a church spire) on the densitometer tracing or as a dense, discrete band on agarose gel (Fig. ).Electrophoresis also permits quantitation of M proteins. Monoclonal light chains (Bence Jones proteinemia) are rarely seen on serum electrophoresis but are easily detected on urine electrophoresis.

This book is written primarily for the clinician (medical student, house officer, and practicing physician) who wishes to further his understanding of the methods of protein analysis and the relationship of protein abnormalities to the pathogenesis and phenomena of : Samuel P.

Gotoff. Total protein content provides some information regarding a patient's general status; more clinically useful data are obtained from fractionating the total protein.

The normal serum protein level is 6 to 8 g/dl. Albumin makes up to g/dl, and the remainder is the total globulins. These values may vary according to the individual by:   Possible causes of high blood protein include: A high-protein diet doesn't cause high blood protein.

High blood protein is not a specific disease or condition in itself. It's usually a laboratory finding uncovered during the evaluation of a particular condition or symptom. For instance, although high blood protein is found in people who are.

If you can only have one book on protein electrophoresis and interpretation, then this is your bible. If you run serum proteins or IFEs, then you probably already know of Dr. Keren, and if you are just learning than this is the most comprehensive source, not just for basic information on interpretation, but also to understand the whys and hows of electrophoretic by: Serum protein electrophoresis (SPEP or SPE) is a laboratory test that examines specific proteins in the blood called globulins.

The most common indications for a serum protein electrophoresis test are to diagnose or monitor multiple myeloma, a monoclonal gammopathy of uncertain significance (MGUS), or further investigate a discrepancy between a low albumin and a relatively high total : D Family Practice Notebook ©, Family Practice Notebook, LLC.

Patients should address specific medical concerns with their physicians. Although access to this page is not restricted, the information found here is intended for use by medical providers. A total serum protein test is a blood test that measures the amounts of total protein, albumin, and globulin in the blood.

Results are usually available within 12 hours. Normal. The normal values listed here—called a reference range—are just a guide. These ranges vary from lab to lab, and your lab may have a different range for what's normal. A total protein test is often done as part of your regular checkup.

It measures the amount of two kinds of protein in your body, albumin and : Cindie Slightam. The total serum protein test measures all the proteins in your blood. It can also check the amount of albumin you have compared to globulin, or what’s called your “A/G ratio.”.

Protein - Protein - Proteins of the blood serum: Human blood serum contains about 7 percent protein, two-thirds of which is in the albumin fraction; the other third is in the globulin fraction.

Electrophoresis of serum reveals a large albumin peak and three smaller globulin peaks, the alpha- beta- and gamma-globulins. The amounts of alpha- beta- and gamma-globulin in normal human serum are.
