Periods of inflammation due to infection, injury, or malignancy are marked by increases in serum constituents known as acute phase proteins (APP), and these proteins have been used as markers for early stages of disease. Four experiments were performed to examine whether levels in chickens of one such APP, alpha1 acid glycoprotein (AGP), would be affected by an infection with Salmonella enteritidis (SE) and if the added stress of induced molting via 14-d feed withdrawal would increase these… CONTINUE READING
