Interestingly, the descriptions of the neurovascular components of ALS described by Garbuzova-Davis and Sanberg in 2014 are in my opinion consistent with the spinal motor nerves being recently reinjured and developing a blood-CSF barrier breach or breaches.
Albumin quotients (QAlb) were calculated using the formula CSF albumin/serum albumin (QAlb = CSF albumin/serum albumin) in order to assess the blood-CSF barrier function.
Flow rate of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)--a concept common to normal blood-CSF barrier function and to dysfunction in neurological diseases.
The best and widely used method for detection of blood-CSF barrier damage is the CSF/serum albumin ratio, since albumin detected in CSF is derived from blood and not produced within the CNS/CSF compartment.
The barrier between blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) [5], known as the blood-CSF barrier (BCB), contributes to central nervous system (CNS) homeostasis and protects it from potentially harmful substances present in the blood.
Following an extensive selection on the role of the choroid plexus in CNS disorders, the final section of the book discusses in vitro, in vivo, and in situ models of the blood-CSF barrier. The book is of interest to those in neuroscience, pharmacology, and toxicology.
