BACKGROUND To date, most work delineating the usefulness of neuron-specific enolase (NSE) as a marker for acute ischemic stroke has been inconclusive. This study had the following objectives: (1) to determine whether serum concentrations of NSE correlate with time of onset of stroke symptoms, volume of infarcted tissue, stroke severity, functional outcome, or length of hospital stay; (2) to determine whether serial measurements of NSE levels are useful markers for ongoing brain ischemia, and (3… CONTINUE READING
