BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Evaluation of biochemical patterns in cerebrospinal fluid may add diagnostic and prognostic information. We tested to determine whether the concentration of superoxide dismutase in cerebrospinal fluid is a marker of brain tissue damage in acute ischemic stroke. METHODS We investigated 36 acute ischemic stroke patients for cerebrospinal fluid activity of the enzyme superoxide dismutase on two occasions shortly after symptom onset (average, day 1 and day 4). RESULTS In… CONTINUE READING
