BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to examine the association between serum level of chemerin with AIS and carotid artery atherosclerosis, and to investigate the level of chemerin as a potential novel cerebrovascular risk factor. MATERIAL AND METHODS We compared the serum chemerin levels and cerebrovascular parameters between 70 AIS patients and 70(More)
Limb remote ischaemic postconditioning (RIPostC) is an effective and well-acknowledged treatment for brain ischaemia injury. The present study aimed to evaluate the role of fibulin-5 in the neuroprotection of RIPostC against cerebral ischaemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats. The middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) model was established in rats and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Stroke is a leading cause of death and severe disability worldwide. Serum biomarkers play a critical role in the assessment of the severity and prognosis in stroke patients. METHODS In this prospective cohort study, the measurement of serum progranulin (PGRN) was conducted in 316 participants, including 216 patients with an(More)
Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) is an important enzyme involved in folate metabolism, which is essential for DNA synthesis and methylation. Genetic variations in the MTHFR gene seem to contribute to a decreased activity of MTHFR, ultimately confer increased susceptibility to stroke. To assess the association between this polymorphism and stroke(More)
