This investigation was carried out to determine the importance ol blood protein fractions in the prognosis and the diagnosis of cattle with TRP and a practical approach was brought to diagnosis of disease by glutaraldehyde (GA) test.

In this research work, twenty healhty cattle (control group), fifteen cattle with acute TRP and twenty cattle with chronic TRP (experimental group) were used as a material. The clinical (glutaraldehyde test, grund test, rectal palpation, investigation with ferr esc op, body Temperature, respiratory and pulse rates) and laboratory examinations (serum total protein, albumin, globulin, plasma fibrinogen levels, blood leucocyte counts and PCV) were performed.

The differencies in WBC, fibrinogen and albumin concentration between healthy cattle and cattle with acute TRP were found to be significant (p< 0.01). The differencies in albumin (p< 0.01). fibrinogen (p< 0.05) and ration of A/G (p<0.05) between healthy and cattle with chronic TRP were found to be significant. Glutaraldehyde test was applied to all cattle with acute and chronic TRP gave positive results within 1-5 minutes.

Of 35 cattle investigeted in experimental group, 1J of which were treated by surgically. 14 of which were treated medically and the remaining 10 cattle with pericarditis were sent to slaugter.

The result of this research work showed that the determination of the blood protein fractions levels were given very important clues of the diagnosis of the cattle with TRP and the periods of the disease. In the mean time, application of GA test gave important clues which about the degree of inflammation.
