Haptoglobin is a serum protein which binds hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying pigment in red blood cells. Measurement of haptoglobin may aid in the diagnosis of hemolytic diseases related to the formation of hemoglobin-haptoglobin complexes and certain kidney diseases. Haptoglobin, an acute phase protein, is a potential reporter molecule for glycosylation changes in the serum which may increase in inflammation and liver disease.
