I need information on currently available synthetic serum albumin, needed for severely ill liver cancer patient?

0 like 0 dislike
My brother has liver cancer.  His serum albumin is about half of what it should be.  The fluid is leaking into the abdomen and will soon overtake his system if we can't get his level stabilized.  Please help with info on what is available that has worked well for others with this problem.  He has abdominal swelling that is pushing lungs upward.  Can someone help?

First allow me to say that I am sorry for the plight of your brother and family.  Now to address your brothers condition.

Have his doctors offered treatment options for the liver cancer?   Is your brother in hospital?  Is he is Intensive Care?   Is you brother in hospice?   Please give a little background information.  This will help determine whether treatment or palliative care is the best option.
