The inflammatory reaction is characterized by increased circulatory levels of various indicators of the severity of inflammation. The objective was to investigate the value of lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) in patients with noncardioembolic ischemic stroke and severe proinflammatory reaction. There were investigated prospectively Lp-PLA2 levels in sera from 47 patients with ischemic stroke and severe inflammatory reaction (32 men and 15 women, mean age 63 +/- 4.23 years) as… CONTINUE READING
