Plasbumin-5 (human)

What is Albumin?

Albumin is a protein made by the liver that circulates through the plasma (the clear liquid part of the blood). Medicinal albumin is composed of plasma proteins extracted from human blood. Plasbumin-5 is a drug that works by increasing plasma volume as well as levels of albumin in the blood.

Albumin is a medicine used to restore the loss of blood volume due to traumas like serious burns or accidents that cause blood loss. It is also utilized to treat low levels of albumin due to surgery, dialysis, abdominal infections, insufficiency of the liver, pancreatitis, respiratory distress and the bypass procedure, ovarian problems caused by fertility medications, as well as other ailments.

Albumin can also be employed for other purposes that are not covered in this guideline for medication.
