The absolute concentration of albumin was measured in the interstitial fluid of subcutaneous adipose tissue and skeletal muscle in six healthy volunteers by combining the method of open-flow microperfusion and the no-net-flux calibration technique. By use of open-flow microperfusion, four macroscopically perforated double lumen catheters were inserted into the tissue regions of interest and constantly perfused. Across the macroscopic perforations of the catheters interstitial fluid was… CONTINUE READING
