OBJECTIVE To describe normal serum levels of S-100beta in healthy children and determine whether serum S-100beta levels after traumatic brain injury are associated with outcome. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING Urban, tertiary care, children's teaching hospital. PATIENTS A total of 136 healthy children and 27 children with traumatic brain injury. METHODS Serum S-100beta levels were measured in 136 healthy children. A total of 27 children with traumatic brain injury had S-100beta… CONTINUE READING
