The Acute phase proteins are produced as the develop of a response caused after a variety of conditions stimulated by inflammatory cells producing chemical substances that activate specific organs to produce these proteins to reconstitute homeostasis and thus restore the injured tissue. Even though the Acute Phase Response generated is not specific for each determined disease, the measurement of these proteins in an animal may indicate the occurrence of an unhealthy condition, and a further diagnosis and prognosis of the illness could be accomplish. Regarding veterinary public health, the livestock production represents a significant field from where products for human consumption are provided. Thus, the measurement of these proteins in livestock carrying an infectious or non-infectious disease that might be triggering this process in their organisms is of great importance, to determine risk factors that could be advantaging these unhealthy conditions and so damaging the animal welfare status; to enhance the production systems and achieve high quality unhazardous products for consumption. INTRODUCTION Tissue injury commences with a local reaction which includes vasodilation, accumulation of inflammatory cells and the increase of capillary permeability. Once damaged the structure, these local inflammatory cells repel infection, rebuild and form new tissue, and release a chemical substance, interleukin-1 (IL-1); to stimulate the production of Acute Phase Proteins (APP)
