Activated leukocytes are believed to be involved in the pathogenesis and progression of atherosclerotic vascular disease and its consequences. In a 4-year observational follow-up study, we investigated whether markers for systemic leukocyte activation (leukocyte-derived inflammatory mediators) were related to cardiovascular mortality after cerebrovascular ischemia. Using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, we measured the plasma levels of soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor protein-1 (sTNFR… CONTINUE READING
