Abstract

The serum level of six acute phase proteins (APP) has been evaluated preoperatively and for a few days in the postoperative period. Thirty patients undergoing total gastrectomy for gastric cancer have been studied in two subgroups according to their nutritional status. Those with gastric cancer had significantly higher baseline serum levels of alpha 1 acid glycoprotein (α1AGP) and C-reactive protein (CRP) than a control group. Malnourished patients also had reduced acute phase response for α1AGP and alpha 1 antitrypsin (α1AT) a higher increase of CRP and fibrinogen, and a lower decrease for transferrin and retinol binding protein (RBP).
