London Inflammation Blood Test
What are the symptoms that make you require a Blood Test Inflammation package?
What does the Inflammation Blood Test package include?
The Blood Test for Inflammation package offered by our clinic London Blood Tests includes the following tests:
- High sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) £20
- Procalcitonin (PCT) £40
- Serum Amyloid Alpha (SAA) £30
A Procalcitonin test is used to measure the level of Procalcitonin in your blood. A Procalcitonin test is mostly needed when you’re seriously ill and the doctor thinks of a systemic infection.
An SAA test is intended for in vitro quantities of Serum Amyloid Alpha determination in serum, plasma, and blood. Also, it is used as an index for infection diagnosis.
The High-Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein test is more sensitive than a standard CRP one, meaning it can detect slight increases in the levels given in the standard CRP test. A High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein test is used to determine the risk of coronary artery disease, to diagnose a chronic inflammatory disease, such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, or even to evaluate the risk of a second heart attack.
