Brain Barrier Disorders

The Brain Barrier Disorder from Lab4More includes NSE and S-100. 

NSE "Neuron-specific Enolase" is useful in the diagnosis and ongoing monitoring of patients with small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC). It may also be used in the diagnosis of other neuroendocrine tumours such as carcinoids, islet cell tumours and neuroblastomas. 

S-100 belongs to a family of calcium-binding proteins formed primarily in nerve tissue and found in high concentrations in liquor. Because S-100 cannot normally cross the blood brain barrier due to its large molecular size, serum concentrations are very low.

Increased S-100 levels in blood can be due to brain lesions (increased release) or due to damage to the blood-brain barrier (increased permeability). Minimal increases in S-100 can, therefore, be used as an indicator of brain damage or traumatic or toxic limitations of the blood-brain barrier function.
