In order to assess the usefulness of haptoglobin as a measure of the acute phase response in cattle, the concentration of serum haptoglobin was estimated in the non-infectious conditions of milk fever and ketosis, and in the infectious conditions of severe mastitis, acute severe metritis, retained placenta and chronic endometritis.

An automated method for the estimation of the acute phase protein haptoglobin was developed and used to compare the blood haptoglobin concentrations of 42 sheep examined post mortem with other haematological findings in infectious and non-infectious conditions. Haptoglobin was also assayed in 863 sheep from nine apparently normal flocks; of these sheep(More)
