Cutaneous interstitial fluid protein concentrations in the inflammatory syndrome: pharmacological consequences.

Author information

Service de Biochimie A, Hotel-Dieu, Rennes, France.


Concentrations of alpha 1 acid glycoprotein, albumin, transferrin, haptoglobin, immunoglobulins G, A, M and apolipoprotein B were measured in serum and suction blister fluid from a group of individuals presenting a biologically proven inflammatory syndrome, and from a control group. Protein values in suction blister fluid did not change from the 2nd to the 3rd h after the beginning of blister formation. The ratio of the concentration of proteins in blister fluid and serum did not differ significantly between the groups. However, a 25% decrease in blister fluid albumin and a 100% increase in blister fluid alpha 1 acid glycoprotein, recorded in the inflammatory group, were worth noting, since they possibly influence the tissular distribution of some protein-binding drugs. Finally, an inverse relationship was established between the blister fluid/serum concentration ratio and the respective molar mass of each protein.
