Amyloid A Component Information for Pathologists
Acute phase protein, which has diagnostic, therapeutic and prognostic implications in a wide variety of diseases. First recognized in serum with its cross reactivity with antisera to amyloid AA of secondary amyloid; both proteins have precursor / product relationship. Synthesized in liver.
Common Uses By Pathologists:
Circulating SAA is associated with prognosis in osteosarcoma patients (Pediatr Blood Cancer 2017 May 24 [Epub ahead of print]). Serum level of SAA is upregulated in glioblastoma (J Neurooncol 2017;132:383). SAA staining is fairly specific for sarcoidosis (Respir Med 2017;126:1). It is associated with earlier stages of chronic hepatitis (Histopathology 2016;69:937) and can be used in combination with other markers to classify hepatocellular adenoma into groups (Front Med (Lausanne) 2017;4:10).
