ABSTRACT S100B has been described as a biologic marker of neuronal damage. The purpose of this study was to assess its prognostic value in patients with subarachnoid aneurysmal hemorrhage.
Seventy-four patients (32 men and 42 women; age, 48 +/- 11 yr) admitted within 48 h after subarachnoid hemorrhage onset and treated by surgical clipping or coiling within 2 days after admission were included. World Federation of Neurological Surgeons, Fisher, and Glasgow outcome scores at intensive care unit discharge and at 6 months were evaluated. Blood concentrations of S100B were determined at admission and daily up to day 8.
The time course of S100B was increased in patients with high World Federation of Neurological Surgeons and Fisher scores. Patients who underwent surgical clipping had an S100B time course longer than that of those who underwent coiling. This difference remained true after stratification for World Federation of Neurological Surgeons and Fisher scores. The threshold of mean daily value of S100B predicting a poor outcome at 6 months was 0.4 microg/l (sensitivity = 0.50 [95% confidence interval (CI), 0.29-0.71], specificity = 0.87[corrected] [95% CI, 0.76-0.95]). In multivariate analysis, high World Federation of Neurological Surgeons score (odds ratio = 9.5 [95% CI, 3.1-29.4]), mean daily S100B value above 0.4 microg/l (odds ratio = 7.3 [95% CI, 2.3-23.6]), and age (odds ratio = 1.08 per year [95% CI, 1.01-1.15]) were independent predictors of a poor 6-month outcome (Glasgow outcome score 1-3).
Mean daily value of S100B assessed during the first 8 days is a prognostic tool complementary to initial clinical evaluation in subarachnoid hemorrhage patients.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract Context: Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) has a high fatality rate and many suffer from delayed neurological deficits. Biomarkers may aid in the identification of high-risk patients, guide treatment/management and improve outcome. Objective: The aim of this review was to summarize biomarkers of SAH associated with outcome. Methods: An electronic database query was completed, including an additional review of reference lists to include all potential human studies. Results: A total of 298 articles were identified; 112 were reviewed; 55 studies were included. Conclusion: This review details biomarkers of SAH that correlate with outcome. It provides the basis for research investigating their possible translation into the management of SAH patients.

    ABSTRACT: For patients presenting with acute brain injury (such as traumatic brain injury, subarachnoid haemorrhage and stroke), the diagnosis and identification of intracerebral lesions and evaluation of the severity, prognosis and treatment efficacy can be challenging. The complexity and heterogeneity of lesions after brain injury are most probably responsible for this difficulty. Patients with apparently comparable brain lesions on imaging may have different neurological outcomes or responses to therapy. In recent years, plasmatic and cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers have emerged as possible tools to distinguish between the different pathophysiological processes. This review aims to summarise the plasmatic and cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers evaluated in subarachnoid haemorrhage, traumatic brain injury and stroke, and to clarify their related interests and limits for diagnosis and prognosis. For subarachnoid haemorrhage, particular interest has been focused on the biomarkers used to predict vasospasm and cerebral ischaemia. The efficacy of biomarkers in predicting the severity and outcome of traumatic brain injury has been stressed. The very early diagnostic performance of biomarkers and their ability to discriminate ischaemic from haemorrhagic stroke were studied.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of hypothermia on S100B and glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) in serum and hippocampus CA1 area in asphyxiated rats after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). A total of 100 SD rats were designated into four groups: group A, sham operation group; group B, rats received conventional resuscitation; group C, rats received conventional resuscitation and hypothermia at cardiac arrest; group D, rats received conventional resuscitation and hypothermia at 30 min after restoration of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). Rats were then killed by cardiac arrest at 2 and 4 h after ROSC; brain tissue was taken to observe dynamic changes of S100B and GFAP in serum and hippocampus CA1 area. Following ROSC, S100B levels increased from 2 to 4 h in group B, C, and D. In addition, S100B in serum and hippocampus CA1 area was all significantly increased at different time points compared with group A (P < 0.05). Following ROSC, serum S100B level at 2 h in group C was significantly decreased compared with group B, but the difference was not statistically significant (P > 0.05). Moreover, S100B in serum at 4 h after ROSC was significantly decreased (P < 0.05), S100B in cortex was significantly decreased (P < 0.05). The expression of GFAP was also examined. GFAP level in hippocampus CA1 area was significantly decreased in group B, C, and D at 4 h after ROSC compared with group A (P < 0.05). S100B and GFAP were expressed in rat serum and hippocampus CA2 area at early stage after ROSC, which can be used as sensitive markers for brain injury diagnosis and prognosis prediction. Hypothermia is also shown to reduce brain injury after CPR.
