Indices for the diagnosis of hyperacute cerebral infarction (HACI) and the prediction of prognosis are essential for timely and appropriate management. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) that regulate gene expression following stroke have potential use as prognostic markers of HACI. Here, we explored whether concentrations of circulating miRNAs correlate with clinical outcomes and thus form a system of stroke stratification. Plasma samples from patients with HACI (n = 7) and age-matched healthy volunteers (HVT… CONTINUE READING
