BACKGROUND Intestinal fatty acid binding protein (I-FABP) is a 15 kd protein that constitutes 2% to 3% of enterocyte protein. Normally I-FABP is undetectable in serum. The purpose of this study was to determine whether I-FABP could be detected in peripheral serum and/or urine early in the evolution of intestinal ischemic injury. METHODS I-FABP and two putative biochemical markers of mesenteric ischemia, hexosaminidase and lactate dehydrogenase, were quantitated in the serum of rats subjected… CONTINUE READING
