  • serum
  • Its presence is predicted by an active disease (according to Valentini score) and low serum prealbumin levels. (bmj.com)
  • Low prealbumin serum levels were significantly associated to a worse survival (univariate HR= 4.89, 1.36-17.56, p=0.015), even when corrected for other significant predictors of mortality in bivariate analyses (lung involvement, g-i involvement, presence of other comorbidities). (bmj.com)
  • specific
  • A PreAlbumin specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. (abcam.com)
  • Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently a PreAlbumin specific biotinylated detection antibody is added and then followed by washing with wash buffer. (abcam.com)
