A rapid and sensitive method for determination of plasma or serum opsonic fibronectin was developed and evaluated. This is a kinetic immunoturbidimetric assay based on the measurement of an antigen-antibody reaction. Comparison with electroimmunoassay was conducted in septic surgical and trauma patients with opsonic fibronectin deficiency before and after infusion of fibronectin-rich plasma cryoprecipitate. In contrast to the 24 to 48 hr needed for obtaining quantitative determinations by… CONTINUE READING
