Lectin Pathway proteins in the blood and CSF of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage

Takeaway

  • Lectin Pathway (LP) protein levels in the peripheral blood differed to those in cerebral blood from the site of injury in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH).

Why this matters

    As LP protein levels in the peripheral blood do not closely reflect the concentration changes at the site of injury in SAH patients, when examining the pathologic mechanisms involved in SAH, cerebral LP protein levels should be considered so as to gain improved insights.
