BACKGROUND Mechanisms involved in stroke progression are incompletely understood. Ischemic brain injury is characterized by acute local inflammatory response mediated by cytokines. Anti-inflammatory cytokines act in a feedback loop to inhibit continued proinflammatory cytokine production. We assessed the implication of interleukin (IL)-10 and IL-4 in deteriorating ischemic stroke. METHODS Two hundred thirty-one patients with ischemic stroke within the first 24 hours from onset were included… CONTINUE READING
