RE: Evan's Blue

From:"Monson, Frederick C."

Evans Blue has been used as a vital dye for years to investigate vascular
injuries which lead to extravasation of blood and plasma proteins,
specifically abumenoids.

Evans blue combines with albumen stoichimetrically and the albumen-Evans
Blue complex is fluorescent.

It has been applied in the following ways:

		1.	injected i.v. as dye only
		2.	injected i.v. as dye-albumen complex

In the first method, the dye immediately combines with blood albumen and as
long as the injection contained less than an excess, all of the dye is
supposed to react with free albumen.

Use "Evans Blue" at PubMed ( [PubMed is a
choice in the "Select" option box].
