AIM To evaluate the potential of the lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A(2) (Lp-PLA(2) level as a biomarker in the prediction of prognostic outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke (IS). METHODS From October 2008 to March 2010, 130 patients with acute IS were prospectively enrolled in the study and their medical records were reviewed. A blood sample was collected from each patient 48 hours after acute IS, as well as from 20 healthy volunteers as controls. Messenger-RNA (mRNA… CONTINUE READING
