BACKGROUND Animal studies have shown a neuroprotective effect of human serum albumin (sAlb) in ischemic stroke (IS). Previous studies have shown an association of high sAlb with better outcome. Our aim is to investigate the kinetics of sAlb in acute IS and its possible correlation with outcome taking into account the analytical and biological variation of sAlb measurement. METHODS In a prospective observational study, we enrolled 105 patients with acute IS. sAlb was measured upon admission… CONTINUE READING
