Aim: Stroke is the third most important cause of death after coronary artery disease and cancer, and the most important among those diseases leading to disability. Recent studies have shown that early diagnosis and treatment of patients presenting to the emergency department with stroke can reduce the effect of the disease on mortality and morbidity. The purpose of this study was to determine the diagnostic value of plasma SCUBE1, a novel biochemical marker thought to be capable of use in ischemic conditions, values in the diagnosis of acute ischemic stroke in the emergency department.
