  1. Serum albumin and mortality in the BUPA study.

    Article - En anglais

    In the British United Provident Association (BUPA) study, a prospective observational study of 21520 men, the serum albumin of 877 men who died during 10 years of follow-up was compared with that of 877 controls, each matched to a case by age (within 1 year) and date of attendance (within 3 months).

    There was little overall difference (mean case-control difference=-0.11 g/l, P>0.2) despite the fact that other studies have reported a long-term association between low serum albumin and increased mortality.

    Cause-specific mortality data showed no association of low albumin with ischaemic heart disease or other circulatory diseases.
