This CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on plasma protein testing.
The questions, written by Dr Jez Thompson, relate to his expert article, Plasma protein tests: how to interpret abnormal results, which covers the constituents of plasma protein, when plasma protein tests are required, and what information they provide.
On completion of this activity, you should be able to:
- know what conditions reduce serum albumin and C-reactive protein
- identify when first-trimester screening can be offered and what it entails
- explain the causes of gamma globulins and what a reduced gamma globulin might suggest.
