Serum protein electrophoresis as an aid in diagnosis of equine verminous arteritis

Serum protein electrophoresis as an aid in diagnosis of equine verminous arteritis

Veterinary Medicine and Small Animal Clinician 78(8): 1279-1280, 1282

Serum protein electrophoretograms were done on 50 horses, all but a few of which had clinical signs suggestive of verminous arteritis (due to Strongylus vulgaris). The beta -globulin value was greater than 25% of total protein in 12 cases and in 10 of these verminous arteritis was confirmed, either at necropsy or on the basis of a favourable response to anthelmintic treatment (thiabendazole or fenbendazole).
