S-100B is a calcium-binding protein that is expressed in astrocytes. We compared the kinetics of serum S-100B in left- and right-hemisphere strokes. Data from 38 acute ischaemic stroke patients who had serial serum S-100B measurements during the first 8 days were analyzed. Stroke severity at baseline, as assessed by the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS), was similar in the two groups. Mean S-100B values were greater in the right-hemisphere stroke group at all time points… CONTINUE READING
