Are you suffering from chronic inflammation?

While acute inflammation only lasts for a few weeks or months, if left untreated, it can turn into chronic inflammation – and that can last for months and years.

Are you suffering from symptoms of acute or chronic inflammation?

Chronic inflammation often manifests in people as symptoms of:
• Pain.
• Fatigue.
• Depression.
• Weight gain.
And in some cases, it can lead to sufferers developing major chronic illnesses like:
• Heart disease.
• Diabetes.
• Alzheimer’s.
• Cancer.
• Arthritis.
Remember, anyone can suffer from chronic inflammation even people who live relatively healthy lives. All it takes are infections, an unhealthy diet, and obesity to trigger the beginning of acute inflammation.

How can a Persistent Inflammation Test help me?

Inflammation isn’t a bad thing. In fact, it’s the body’s natural way of healing damaged tissue. But how do you know when your persistent inflammation is no longer helping you – but hindering your health instead?
That’s when the persistent inflammation test comes in.
Our persistent inflammation test will require you to take a blood sample with the at-home kit, and this will measure the levels of serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins that are expressed in response to inflammatory stimuli. High levels of SAA will allow you to explore whether your persistent inflammation has turned chronic – and the risks that it may pose to you.

Order your Home Inflammation Test to gain a fast indication of the presents of Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins in your blood.

Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins have several roles, including the transport of cholesterol to the liver for secretion into the bile and the recruitment of immune cells to inflammatory sites. Understanding SAA levels in your blood can help with the further diagnosis of inflammation in the body.

Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins in your blood can be an indicator that further investigation of inflammation is required. This test uses a small sample of blood in a compact testing kit which is mailed directly to you.

The easy-to-use CE-approved testing kit is mailed immediately on purchase and should reach you within 1-3 working days.

In the box, there will be full instructions provided on how to complete the sample and testing process in 10 minutes.

Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins are produced predominantly by the liver and are usually in response to inflammation in the body.

The raised Serum amyloid A (SAA) gives an indicator of inflammation in the body and is especially useful for evaluating disease severity and monitoring disease activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and secondary amyloidosis.

An SSA level higher than 10μIU/mL indicates a higher than normal level and a positive test.

The test provides results based on a Positive/Higher or Negative/Normal basis. Positive results can then be used to request a secondary test or consult further medical advice.

Symptoms you might be suffering from:

Testing Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins can provide valuable early warning signs of current or persistent inflammation and allow quicker additional diagnostics. Common symptoms include:

  • Joint pain
  • Movement pain and restriction
  • Inflammation
  • Possible arthritis

1

Receive your test kit in the post.

2

Clean your finger and use the finger prick lancet to release blood.

3

Draw the sample into the capillary and fill completely.

4

Place the blood-filled capillary into the buffer tube, shake vigorously for 10 seconds then leave
for 1 minute to allow the sample to settle.

5

Transfer 3 drops of the diluted sample to the sample well.

6

Wait 5 minutes for the results to appear.

NOTE: Do not interpret before 5 minutes or after 10 minutes as the
results may be inaccurate.

SAA Rapid Test is a qualitative, solid phase, two-site sandwich immunoassay for the detection of serum amyloid A protein in whole blood, serum, or plasma.

The membrane is pre-coated with anti-SAA antibodies on the test line region of the cassette.

During testing, SAA, if present in the whole blood, serum, or plasma specimen, reacts with the colored particles coated with anti-SAA antibodies.

The SAA-Conjugate complex migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action to react with anti-SAA antibodies in the test line region on the membrane and generates a colored line.

The presence of this colored line in the test region indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result.

As a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the control line region, indicating that a proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane absorbing has occurred.

What’s included in the Persistent Inflammation Test:

1 x Test cassette
1 x Single-use buffer
1 x Sterile lancet

Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins are a family of apolipoproteins associated with high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in plasma.

Different isoforms of SAA are expressed constitutively (constitutive SAAs) at different levels or in response to inflammatory stimuli (acute phase SAAs).

These proteins are produced predominantly by the liver (1). Acute-phase serum amyloid A proteins (A-SAAs) are secreted during the acute phase of inflammation.

These proteins have several roles, including the transport of cholesterol to the liver for secretion into the bile, the recruitment of immune cells to inflammatory sites, and the induction of enzymes that degrade the extracellular matrix.

Serum amyloid A (SAA) is also an acute-phase marker that responds rapidly. It has been suggested that SAA levels correlate better with disease activity in early inflammatory joint disease than do ESR and CRP.

Although largely produced by hepatocytes, more recent studies show that SAA is produced by adipocytes as well, and its serum concentration is associated with body mass index (2,3).
