Lactoferrin, C-reactive protein, alpha-1-antitrypsin and immunoglobulin GA in cerebrospinal fluid in meningitis.


Cerebrospinal fluid measurements of lactoferrin and alpha-1-antitrypsin showed significant elevation in bacterial meningitis in children. 8 of 10 lactoferrin values and 6 of 11 alpha-1-antitrypsin values were above the upper range of controls. Both proteins correlated well with the total number of leukocytes in the cerebrospinal fluid. C-reactive protein… (More)
