Higher concentrations of intracellular adhesion molecule 3 associated with increased risk of stroke

Takeaway

  • Increased blood concentrations of intracellular adhesion molecule 3 (ICAM3) were associated with increased risk of incident stroke, which was more apparent for ischemic strokes.

Why this matters ?

    The associations between biomarkers of vascular injury and stroke risk have rarely been studied, and this was the first prospective population-based study to do so.
