Manufacturers plan to implement premium pricing strategies for commercial use of albumin as
an excipient, finds Frost & Sullivan
However, for over a decade, the healthcare industry has been exploring the use of human albumin as
a non-therapeutic substance/excipient for commercial settings.
Preparation of highly purified monomeric human serum albumin as
secondary reference material for standardization of urinary albumin immunoassays.
The use of albumin as
a carrier of bioactive small molecules, or co-factors, including metal ions in improving cell growth and performance has shown that albumin contributes to the efficacy of many of these molecules in improving cell performance.
The demand for blood albumin has increased over the years due to growing usage of albumin as
a cell culture medium ingredient, antioxidant and also as the most effective volume expander in critical care conditions such as liver disease and hemorrhagic stroke.
As such, our results suggested that it might be prudent to avoid using intravenous albumin as
a standard resuscitation fluid immediately after severe neurotrauma until its safety and cost-effectiveness can be established by an adequately powered randomised controlled trial (16,22,23).

People have thought of serum albumin as
being a sticky molecule," says crystallographer Daniel C.
Major applications for albumin as
an excipient comprise drug formulation and drug delivery, vaccines and component of medium.
