BACKGROUND The availability of markers able to provide an early insight related to prognostic and functional outcome of patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) are limited. OBJECTIVE The relationship of clinical outcome with CSF neuron-specific enolase (NSE), S100B and glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) levels in patients with severe TBI was investigated. METHODS Twenty patients with severe TBI (7 days at unit care) and controls were studied. Patients were grouped according to the… CONTINUE READING
