Plasma soluble P-selectin is thought to be a useful marker for thrombotic diseases. To evaluate the thrombotic state and risk of stroke in aged healthy subjects, we investigated plasma P-selectin levels in healthy subjects and ischemic stroke patients. Plasma P-selectin was measured in 67 healthy subjects and 35 aged (>or= 65 years of age) patients with chronic ischemic stroke using a sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Plasma P-selectin was significantly higher in aged (>or= 65… CONTINUE READING
