Abstract

The subject of the present paper is an application of the deconvolution approach to the study of extravascular (EV) albumin space. The method developed enables us to estimate not only the rate of transfer outside the vascular space and the total EV mass of the protein, but also the mass of EV albumin exchanging with the intravascular protein in a given time interval. This last parameter can be obtained using data from short-term tracer experiments (48–24 hours or less), as its computation does not imply extrapolation.
