Involvement of soluble vascular endothelial-cadherin in brain injury after subarachnoid hemorrhage

Takeaway

  • Soluble vascular endothelial (sVE)-cadherin levels are increased in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of people with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and associated with clinical outcomes after SAH.

Why this matters

    Although sVE-cadherin has been associated with clinical outcomes in a range of inflammatory states, its role in neurological diseases is unknown. These findings could help the development of new therapeutic approaches for SAH.
