Objective: The astrocyte-derived protein S100B has been proposed as a biomarker predicting the severity of brain injury after different types of neurotrauma. Beside S100B measurements in blood, a positive correlation between S100B levels in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and worse outcome following traumatic[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
