CSF LEAKAGE EVALUATION (NASAL/EAR DISCHARGE)

BTP (Beta Trace Protein), also known as Prostaglandin D2 synthase, is a low molecular mass protein present in serum, plasma, urine and other secretions with highest concentration in CSF. It is the second most abundant protein in CSF and is an ideal marker for CSF leakage in nasal or ear discharge in traumatic or surgical brain injury patients. The assay has high sensitivity (98%) and specificity (96%) to confirm the presance of CSF in Nasal/Ear discharge and can aid in further investigations and treatment in head injury patients.
