Evaluation of IL-33 in Patients With the Acute Ischemic Stroke

2019-05-19 19:37:23 | BioPortfolio


Aim of the study is to evaluate the usefulness of interleukin 33 in the blood plasma in patients with the acute ischemic stroke of the brain in relation to mode of treatment (thrombolysis, thrombectomy, no treatment), risk factors in correlation with other inflammatory state markers (hsCRP, morphology with smear ). Blood is collected on the first and seventh days of stroke.

The purpose is to clarify utility of IL 33 as a biomarker of acute stroke.


Stroke is the third most frequent cause of death in highly developed countries (after heart disease and cancer), the main cause of disability in adults and the second most frequent cause of dementia syndromes. The annual incidence of stroke in the general population is approximately 0.2%. The risk of stroke increases with age.

Globally 15 million people are affected each year and 5.5 million die every year for this reason (20% in 30 days and up to 40% in a year from getting ill). In Poland, the incidence of stroke is around 175/100,000 in men and 125/100 in women.It is assumed that the cause of sudden cerebral insufficiency is mainly the embolism coming from the newly formed wall clot forming at the site of the atherosclerotic plaque rupture.

In recent years, the role of inflammatory factors is associated with the occurrence of severe atherosclerotic complications such as stroke or heart attack. Cytokines are glycoproteins that are released by activated cells of various tissues. They have a significant impact on the inflammation processes, they control all phases of the immune response. Interleukin is one of the cytokine groups. This study aims to find a relationship between level of IL 33 concentration and the size of the stroke and neurological deficit.

Blood will be collected on the first and seventh days of stroke for examination of Il 33, blood morphology and hsCRP

Is spontaneous normalization of systolic blood pressure within 24 hours after ischemic stroke onset related with favorable outcomes?

In acute ischemic stroke, blood pressure (BP) tends to rise initially and fall to a baseline level within 24-48 hours. Previous studies reported several different effects of BPs during acute ischemic ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Restoration of blood supply to tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. It is primarily a procedure for treating infarction or other ischemia, by enabling viable ischemic tissue to recover, thus limiting further necrosis. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing REPERFUSION INJURY.

A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.

Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.

The time required for the appearance of FIBRIN strands following the mixing of PLASMA with phospholipid platelet substitute (e.g., crude cephalins, soybean phosphatides). It is a test of the intrinsic pathway (factors VIII, IX, XI, and XII) and the common pathway (fibrinogen, prothrombin, factors V and X) of BLOOD COAGULATION. It is used as a screening test and to monitor HEPARIN therapy.

A test to detect non-agglutinating ANTIBODIES against ERYTHROCYTES by use of anti-antibodies (the Coombs' reagent.) The direct test is applied to freshly drawn blood to detect antibody bound to circulating red cells. The indirect test is applied to serum to detect the presence of antibodies that can bind to red blood cells.
