Dog Disease - Inflammatory Amyloidosis Disease

Amyloidiosis is a dog disease in which amyloid proteins and/or fibrils are deposited in organs or tissues. This disease is inherited, acquired and infectious.

The most common form of systemic amyloidosis worldwide is Amyloid A amyloidosis (AA). It is resulted as a result of tissue deposition of fibrils composed of serum amyloid (SAA) protein which is a major acute-phase reactant protein produced by the liver cells. It occurs during chronic inflammatory disease which may be of infectious or noninfectious origin, inherited periodic fevers, and certain neoplasms such as renal cell carcinoma and Hodgkin disease. 

Amyloidosis in heritable in the Chinese Shar-Pei. Protein in the urine is caused by Glomerular amyloidosis.
Many types of Amyloid Protein Involved in Amyloidosis. There are many type of amyloid and they are categorized on the basis of amyloid protein involved. Amyloid is categorized chemically. The amyloidoses are represented by capital A (for amyloid) which is followed by an abbreviation for the fibril protein.
Twenty-three different fibril proteins are potrayed in human amyloidosis with changeable clinical features.
