Plasma variations of biomarkers for muscle damage in male nondisabled and spinal cord injured subjects

Sandra Loerakker, MSc, et al.

Pressure ulcers cause much suffering to veterans and their family members. Early detection of this potentially long-standing condition would improve chances for successful treatment. This study attempts to identify the concentrations of biochemical markers, collected from blood samples, that will indicate early tissue damage. The results suggest that there are considerable differences between individuals, which must be considered when screening for the presence of deep tissue injury.
