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.

Association between Serum Magnesium Levels and Depression in Stroke Patients.
Post-stroke depression (PSD) is a common psychiatric complication of stroke that is associated with a poor outcome in stroke patients. Our aim was to assess the association between the serum magnesium levels and the presence of PSD in Chinese patient

The Relationship of Serum S100B Levels with Infarction Size and Clinical Outcome in Acute Ischemic Stroke Patients.
S100B protein, which helps nerve development and differentiation, is produced by astrocytes and can be detected in peripheral circulation after brain damage. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between the serum S100B protein leve

Serum procalcitonin levels in patients with primary pulmonary coccidioidomycosis.
The serum procalcitonin assay has emerged as a promising biomarker to distinguish between bacterial and viral respiratory tract infections but has not been used to differentiate coccidioidomycosis from bacterial infection. A correlation between proca

Relationship of Serum Procalcitonin Levels to Severity and Prognosis in Pediatric Bacterial Meningitis.
To investigate the relationship between serum procalcitonin (PCT) levels and prognosis in children with bacterial meningitis.

The relationship between serum insulin-like growth factor I levels and ischemic stroke risk.
The aim of the study was to assess the relationship between insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) serum levels and acute ischemic stroke (AIS) in a Chinese population.

The Relationship Between Serum Levels of Interleukins 6, 8, 10 and Clinical Outcome in Patients With Severe Traumatic Brain Injury.
Clinical outcome in patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) depends on both primary and secondary brain injuries. Neuroinflammation is an important secondary mechanism, which occurs by releasing interleukins (ILs). Increased levels of ILs m

Is there a correlation between hs-CRP levels and functional outcome of Ischemic Stroke?
C-reactive protein, a well known marker of inflammation is being investigated as a probable marker of predicting acute cardiovascular events and its severity. The aim of the present study was to assess the possible role of highly-sensitivity C-reacti

Relationship between Serum Ferritin Levels and Dyslipidemia in Korean Adolescents.
Ferritin is associated with various cardiometabolic risk factors such as dyslipidemia, hypertension, obesity, and insulin resistance in adults. We aimed to study the association between serum ferritin levels and dyslipidemia in adolescents, because d

Serum procalcitonin as a diagnostic marker in acute ischemic stroke.
The aim of the study was to assess the relationship between procalcitonin (PCT) serum levels and acute ischemic stroke (AIS) in a Chinese sample. All consecutive patients with first-ever AIS between January 2012 and December 2013 were recruited to pa
