OBJECTIVES To study the impact of blood glucose concentrations on early stroke mortality in diabetic and non-diabetic stroke patients, and to identify the optimal blood glucose concentration for each patient category. MATERIAL AND METHODS A representative sample of 81 diabetic and 366 non-diabetic stroke patients was studied. Logistic regression analyses(More)
The specific appearance of blood related to time at T1- and T2-weighted spin-echo (SE) sequences is generally accepted; thus, these sequences are classically used for estimating the age of haematomas. Magnetic resonance imaging at 1.5 T, including T1- and T2-weighted SE fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) and T2*-weighted gradient-echo (GE)(More)
By the use of a radioimmunoassay, ferritin was detected in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of apparently healthy individuals at a mean concentration of 5.1 arb U/l, i.e. a level about 5% of the mean normal serum-ferritin concentration. Fourteen patients with acute cerebrovascular stroke or transient ischemic attacks (one case) were followed by serial(More)
ECP (eosinophil cationic protein) has been measured by means of a specific radioimmunoassay in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from 210 individuals with various diseases affecting the central nervous system. In the same specimens lactoferrin and albumin were measured as well, as indicators of neutrophil-involved inflammation and damage to the blood-brain(More)
The aim of this study was to assess whether adjuvant treatment of breast cancer (BC) affects the risk of stroke, and to explore radiation targets and fraction doses regarding risk and location of stroke. In a Swedish BC cohort diagnosed during 1970-2003, we carried out a nested case-control study of stroke after BC, with relevant details extracted from(More)
BACKGROUND It has not been clarified whether the disparity in ischemic stroke outcome between populations is caused by ethnic and geographic differences or by variations in case mix. Propensity score matching (PSM) analysis can overcome some analytical problems but is rarely used in stroke outcome research. This study was to compare the ischemic stroke(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the location and extent of the CT hyperdense artery sign (HAS) at presentation affects response to IV alteplase in the randomized controlled Third International Stroke Trial (IST-3). METHODS All prerandomization and follow-up (24-48 hours) CT brain scans in IST-3 were assessed for HAS presence, location, and extent by(More)
Adenylate kinase activity was found in 32 of 34 samples of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from 21 patients with stroke and seven patients with global cerebral ischaemia (GCI). The light absorbance values of the spectrum 400-650 nm revealed the scanty occurrence of haemoglobin products in the CSF in some patients. No correlation was found between the absorbance(More)
