Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A condition in which albumin level in blood (SERUM ALBUMIN) is below the normal range. Hypoalbuminemia may be due to decreased hepatic albumin synthesis, increased albumin catabolism, altered albumin distribution, or albumin loss through the urine (ALBUMINURIA).
All blood proteins except albumin ( = SERUM ALBUMIN, which is not a globulin) and FIBRINOGEN (which is not in the serum). The serum globulins are subdivided into ALPHA-GLOBULINS; BETA-GLOBULINS; and GAMMA-GLOBULINS on the basis of their electrophoretic mobilities. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Serum Albumin, Bovine
Serum albumin from cows, commonly used in in vitro biological studies. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
Serum Albumin, Radio-iodinated
Normal human serum albumin mildly iodinated with radioactive iodine (131-I) which has a half-life of 8 days, and emits beta and gamma rays. It is used as a diagnostic aid in blood volume determination. (from Merck Index, 11th ed)
A tetrameric protein, molecular weight between 50,000 and 70,000, consisting of 4 equal chains, and migrating on electrophoresis in 3 fractions more mobile than serum albumin. Its concentration ranges from 7 to 33 per cent in the serum, but levels decrease in liver disease.
Serum albumin is an established predictor of survival in numerous cancers but its prognostic value in central nervous system tumours has not been established. Here we have examined prognostic factors...
Although the interactions between bilirubin and serum albumin are among the most studied serum albumin-ligand interactions, the binding-site location and the participation of bilirubin-serum albumin c...
OBJECTIVES: Serum albumin and activities of daily living (ADL) are associated with each other, but whether the association is causal is not known. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a...
Background: Disease-specific biomarkers hold diagnostic promise in both human and veterinary medicine, but serum biomarkers in low concentrations may be masked by the presence of abundant proteins, mo...
Ovarian cancer is associated with high mortality due to asymptomatic nature of the disease and advance stage at presentation. In advanced stages, it is associated with cachexia and ascites leading to...
This study will compare the clinical efficacy and safety of Voluven® and Human Albumin during elective open-heart surgery in pediatric patients.
The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the pharmacokinetic behavior of Suc-HSA after consecutive daily intravenous (i.v.) doses. The secondary objectives are to evaluate the saf...
BACKGROUND The association between mortality and hypoalbuminemia has been observed in several diseases. Nonetheless, the efficacy of albumin on survival in critically ill patients is contr...
Morbidity and mortality in patients suffering from systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) remain high. The primary aim of the present study is to assess the efficacy of a standardi...
This research study was designed to look at the effect of human albumin transfusion on circulating levels of Vascular Endothelial Derived Growth Factor (VEGF), a protein that is believed t...
