Ischemia-modified albumin constitutes via a modifcation in albumin where reactive oxygen species are formed due to ischemia. Albumin is measured using the cobalt binding test, and this test is used for the determination of albumin prior to the development of permanent cardiac injuries. In this review, we investigated the pathophysiology, analysis and clinical utility of ischemia-modified albumin.
