Analyzed versus the large plasma marker of fibrinogen, initial albumin plasma disappearance in man or animals is sharply biphasic. Albumin uptake in skin, muscle and viscera follow the same pattern, suggesting serial barriers to albumin efflux in these tissues, i.e., a capillary membrane barrier and an interstitial barrier. The transport across the membrane is rapid, in both directions and probably mediated by diffusion, while interstitial transport may be slow, mainly unilateral and mainly… CONTINUE READING
