Flow-cytometric characterization of stroke-associated cerebrospinal fluid leukocyte profiles

Takeaway

  • In this study, no significant changes in numbers or composition of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leukocyte populations were identified following ischemic stroke (IS).

Why this matters ?

  • Characterization of changes in brain leukocyte populations following IS could lead to identification of therapeutic targets for limiting secondary post-stroke neuronal damage.
