Modern neuroimaging safely and reliably diagnoses stroke and provides information for outcome prediction. However, some patients with clinical stroke have no detectable abnormality on neuroimaging and other patients are not fit for such investigations. Therefore, we evaluated the potential of plasma DNA and serum S100 protein concentrations to predict post-stroke mortality and morbidity in patients with negative neuroimaging results. Patients with stroke-like symptoms but negative neuroimaging… CONTINUE READING
