OBJECTIVE Past ischemic stroke (IS) patients display suppressed adiponectin (ADPN) levels a few months after disease onset. It is still unclear whether hypoadiponectinemia is already present by the early stages of stroke or occurs as a delayed effect of the acute ischemic reaction. In the present study we investigated ADPN levels acutely after an IS. MATERIALS AND METHODS Serum ADPN was measured in 82 consecutive acute IS patients, and 30 stroke-free subjects of similar age and sex… CONTINUE READING
