Abstract Background: Ischemia-modified albumin (IMA), measured by the cobalt-binding capacity of albumin, is a promising biomarker for cardiac ischemia. The IMA-to-serum albumin ratio (IMAR) has been reported to relate to the severity of decompensated liver cirrhosis. This study aimed to assess IMA and IMAR as a liver function test and to investigate whether albumin infusion changes IMAR in patients with liver cirrhosis. Methods: Blood samples were collected from healthy volunteers (n=51) and… Expand
