Interpretation

Alpha-1-Acid Glycoprotein is an acute phase protein and levels are elevated during infections and both acute and chronic inflammatory processes.  Patients with injuries, burns, tumours and chronic renal failure also exhibit elevated concentrations. Diminished concentrations due to restricted production of alpha-1-acid glycoprotein are found in patients with chronic liver disease.
