Cystatin C, a potential marker for cerebral microvascular compliance, is associated with white-matter hyperintensities progression

Cerebral white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) are central MRI markers of the brain aging process, but the mechanisms for its progression remain unclear. In this study, we aimed to determine whether the baseline serum cystatin C level represented one mechanism underlying WMH progression, and whether it was associated with the long-term progression of… CONTINUE READING
