Order Name:
Ceruloplasmin **

 
 
Clinical Information:
Ceruloplasmin is a positive acute-phase reactant and a copper-binding protein that accounts for over 95% of serum copper in normal adults. Ceruloplasmin is measured primarily to assist with a diagnosis of Wilson disease. Other indications include Menkes disease, dietary copper insufficiency, and risk of cardiovascular disease.
 
Interpretation:
Low concentrations of ceruloplasmin are consistent with Wilson disease and warrant further investigation.
