S-100B Protein

Clinical Significance

S100 has been studied for use as a biochemical marker for central nervous system pathology. Numerous studies in the literature have suggested the clinical usefulness of measuring this protein in cerebrospinal fluid, and in recent years, serum S100B has been reported as a useful marker for early detection of metastases of melanoma and cerebral complications from head injury, cardiac surgery, and acute stroke.
