Quantitative proteomics comparison of arachnoid cyst fluid and cerebrospinal fluid collected perioperatively from arachnoid cyst patients
(BioMed Central, 2013-04-29)
Background: There is little knowledge concerning the content and the mechanisms of filling of arachnoid cysts. The aim of this study was to compare the protein content of arachnoid cysts and cerebrospinal fluid by quantitative ...
Characterization of arachnoid cysts using clinical chemistry, qualitative and quantitative proteomics
(The University of Bergen, 2013-05-03)
Arachnoid cyst are benign intracranial lesions with a reported prevalence up to 1.1 % in the population. The origin of such cysts and the mechanisms of filling and sustaining are poorly understood. The aim of the thesis ...
Arachnoid cysts do not contain cerebrospinal fluid: A comparative chemical analysis of arachnoid cyst fluid and cerebrospinal fluid in adults
(BioMed Central, 2010-06-10)
Background Arachnoid cyst (AC) fluid has not previously been compared with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the same patient. ACs are commonly referred to as containing "CSF-like fluid". The objective of this study was to ...
Protein profiling reveals inter-individual protein homogeneity of arachnoid cyst fluid and high qualitative similarity to cerebrospinal fluid
(BioMed Central, 2011-05-20)
Background: The mechanisms behind formation and filling of intracranial arachnoid cysts (AC) are poorly understood. The aim of this study was to evaluate AC fluid by proteomics to gain further knowledge about ACs. Two ...
