Albumin CSF

Albumin concentration in cerebrospinal fluid reflects the integrity of the blood-brain barrier by calculating the CSF / serum albumin ratio. Indeed, albumin synthesis is only hepatic and its presence in the CSF signifies a transudation. This report must be <0.006 or <0.008 depending on age. The assay must be coupled with serum concentration measured at the same time.
