Abstract

Objective: Use of biochemical markers of cerebral ischemia is a newly favored approach for early diagnosis of ischemic stroke. Our aim was to establish the sensitivity and specificity of ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) in acute ischemic stroke and to compare it with S100b and neuron-specific enolase (NSE). We also intended to investigate the usefulness of a panel composed of these three biomarkers in acute ischemic stroke.
