Stroke, a major cause of disability and mortality, affects someone in the United States every 40s. Stroke biomarkers, including those that could be used as a blood test for diagnosis of stroke, have been particularly elusive. We performed a double blind study to identify human plasma biomarkers for the diagnosis of stroke, including acute ischemic stroke (AIS) and intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). We utilized a three-track approach based on the total metal profile, the metal cofactor levels among… CONTINUE READING
