Researchers at the Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health (MA, USA) have identified four new biomarkers for stroke, following a 9-year study into 15 inflammatory biomarkers. The researchers suggest that these new blood markers could be used for stroke development prognosis, permitting earlier implementation of prevention therapies to improve patient outcomes.

Of the 15 measured biomarkers, four showed...
