    The relationship between the levels of serum acute phase reactant proteins (alpha 1-acid glycoprotein, alpha 1-antitrypsin, haptoglobin) was investigated in patients with glioblastoma multiforme in relation to their prognosis. Alpha 1-acid glycoprotein was higher in the patients who died within one year after admission than in those with a longer survival time. It is suggested that serum alpha 1-acid glycoprotein profiles provide prognostic information in patients with glioblastoma multiforme.
