Correlation between serum neuron specific enolase and functional neurological outcome in patients of acute ischemic stroke.
The use of biomarkers to predict stroke prognosis is gaining particular attention nowadays. Neuron specific enolase (NSE), which is a dimeric isoenzyme of the glycolytic enzyme enolase and is found mainly in the neurons is one such biomarker.

Protein S-100 and neuron-specific enolase serum levels remain unaffected by electroconvulsive therapy in patients with depression.
The mechanism of the reversible cognitive deficits that might occur within an electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) treatment has not been clarified in a substantial way yet. Although the data available so far do not point towards a cause due to any struct

The second elevation of neuron-specific enolase peak after ischemic stroke is associated with hemorrhagic transformation.
Neuron-specific enolase (NSE) is a surrogate marker for the extent of brain damage after ischemic stroke and affords a good predictor of stroke prognosis. We hypothesized that the pattern of NSE level changes in the peripheral blood during the acute

Hypothermia after cardiac arrest does not affect serum levels of neuron-specific enolase and protein S-100b.
We investigated the brain-derived proteins neuron-specific enolase (NSE) and protein S-100b (S-100b) in survivors of cardiac arrest who had either received therapeutic hypothermia (TH) or had not.

Serum neuron specific enolase levels correlate with patient prognosis for advanced lung cancer.
To analyze the clinical and prognostic value of neuron specific enolase (NSE) levels in serum of advanced lung cancer patients, we analyzed serum NSE level of 110 advanced lung cancer patients (case group), 100 benign lung disease patients (benign di

Serum neuron specific enolase - impact of storage and measuring method.
Neuron specific enolase (NSE) is a recognized biomarker for assessment of neurological outcome after cardiac arrest, but its reliability has been questioned. Our aim was to investigate what influence storage of samples and choice of measuring methods

Serum neuron-specific enolase levels are upregulated in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and are predictive of prognosis.
We explored the relationship between neuron-specific enolase (NSE) levels and the clinical features of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Seventy ALL patients and forty-two healthy controls were enrolled in this study, and their serum NSE levels wer

Elevated levels of cerebrospinal fluid neuron-specific enolase (NSE) in Alzheimer's disease.
Neuron-specific enolase (NSE) is a neuronal glycolytic enzyme of which cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) levels are found altered following acute or prolonged neuronal damage. Investigations concerning the role of NSE in Alzheimer's disease (AD) are conflict
