Forty well-defined acute stroke patients were investigated for some cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) markers of cerebral damage. Myelin-basic protein (MBP), tau-fraction, albumin, IgG and transferrin were analyzed on two early occasions after onset of clinical symptoms. Patients with transitory ischaemic attack (TIA) had normal values for MBP both at first and second lumbar puncture. Patients with cerebral infarction and haemorrhage had mean MBP concentrations higher than normal at both lumbar… CONTINUE READING
