The prediction of outcome after ischemic stroke (IS) is currently based on indirect data from clinical and radiological evaluation. We evaluated the usefulness of serum Tau protein as possible prognostic markers for IS. Fifty-six patients with computed tomography-confirmed IS were enrolled. Blood samples were obtained on days 1, 3, 5, and 10 after stroke onset. Tau and S100BB serum levels were measured by commercially available enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Neurological deficits were… CONTINUE READING
