Serum CRP concentrations and severity of ischemic stroke subtypes.
Nanjing, China. In Can J Neurol Sci, 2012
In subtype stroke, the highest rate of elevated CRP and NIHSS were in those with cardioembolic stroke (CE) using TOAST classification, total anterior circulation infarction (TACI) of OCSP classification and large volume infarction (LVI) of Adams classification; the odds ratio(OR) between elevated CRP and NIHSS was 6.14 (95% CI 1.43-26.44) in CE, 1.714 (95% CI 1.30-2.26) in TACI, 2.32 (95% CI 1.08-4.99) in LVI, and the p value were all below 0.05.
Matrix metalloproteinases and their inhibitors in different acute stroke subtypes.
Zagreb, Croatia. In Clin Chem Lab Med, 2005
The aim of the study was to determine serum levels of selected matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their natural inhibitors (TIMPs) in the acute phase of different stroke types subdivided according to the Oxfordshire Community Stroke Project (OCSP) classification and the possibility of discriminating stroke types according to their levels.
Hemostatic activation in acute ischemic stroke.
Oslo, Norway. In Thromb Res, 2001
Stroke severity was assessed on admission by the Oxfordshire Community Stroke Project (OCSP) classification, and on discharge (median 9 days, interquartile range 6-14) by Barthel Index (BI, scores 0-50, 55-90, or 95-100) and modified Rankin Scale (mRS, scores 0-1 or 2-6).
Apolipoprotein E polymorphism in cerebrovascular disease.
Leeds, United Kingdom. In Acta Neurol Scand, 2000
Pathological type of stroke was determined by cranial computed tomography and the subtype of cerebral infarction classified according to the Oxfordshire Community Stroke Project Classification (OCSP).
