When you suffer an injury (e.g., a skull fracture), it causes a tear in the membranes covering the brain and spine, and CSF may leak out. This also results in a watery discharge from the nose or ear (rhinorrhoea or otorrhoea). The test also looks for the presence of something that is normally only found in CSF, such as beta-2 transferrin, a type of transferrin found in CF but not normally found in blood, nasal secretions, or other body fluids.
Nasal Discharge test
Why Is it done?
Beta-2 transferrin is a CSF-specific transferrin variant that serves as an endogenous marker of CSF leakage. The loss of sialic acid caused by the presence of neuraminidase in the central nervous system results in the formation of beta-2 transferrin.
What is the procedure for Beta 2 Fluid Transferrin Test?
0.5 mL of body fluid (nasal) is usually required (0.2 ml minimum). Pipettes, syringes, test tubes, and micro collection devices can be used for direct collection.
