Alpha-Fetoprotein (AFP) and Inflammation: Is AFP an Acute and/or Chronic Phase Reactant?

Even though alpha-fetoprotein has long been implicated with inflammation during pregnancy and adult liver dysfunction, the literature lacks a review of such a relationship. Clarification of the role of alpha-fetoprotein in the inflammatory response is explored in the present report regarding AFP’s participation as a positive and/or negative phase inflammatory reactant. Inflammation follows a complex succession of vascular changes involving alternations in blood and lymphatic vessels both at local intracellular sites and at the organ (liver) level.
