Abstract

Serum amyloid P component (SAP) is a normal constituent of human serum. A rate nephelometric technique has been developed that can measure this protein more rapidly and reproducibly than previously described methods. Materials required are simple and commercially available. Studies on 30 patients with amyloidosis show no difference in SAP levels from control patients. Rate nephelometry is a simple technique that could expand the ability to measure SAP beyond the research setting.
