BACKGROUND: Embolism from unstable atheromas in the carotid bifurcation is a major cause of stroke. Here, we analysed gene expression in endarterectomies from patients with symptomatic (S) and asymptomatic (AS) carotid stenosis to identify pathways linked to plaque instability. METHODS: Microarrays were prepared from plaques (n = 127) and peripheral blood samples (n = 96) of S and AS patients. Gene set enrichment, pathway mapping and network analyses of differentially expressed genes were performed...

Biomarker profiling is utilized to identify diagnostic and prognostic candidates for stroke. Clinical and preclinical biomarker data suggest altered circulating immune responses may illuminate the mechanisms of stroke recovery. However, the relationship between peripheral blood biomarker profile(s) and brain profiles following stroke remains elusive. Data show that neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR) predicts stroke outcome. Neutrophils release Arginase 1 (ARG1) resulting in T lymphocyte suppression in peripheral blood...

OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study were to determine the change in gene expression between two time points following stroke and to identify biomarkers of stroke recovery through gene expression profiling and pathway analysis. METHODS: Peripheral blood was collected from 34 ischemic stroke patients (confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging) ≥18 years of age, within 24 hr of symptom onset and 24-48 hr later, and from healthy controls. The Modified Rankin Scale (MRS) was used to determine 30-day recovery...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The cause of ischemic stroke remains unclear, or cryptogenic, in as many as 35% of patients with stroke. Not knowing the cause of stroke restricts optimal implementation of prevention therapy and limits stroke research. We demonstrate how gene expression profiles in blood can be used in conjunction with a measure of infarct location on neuroimaging to predict a probable cause in cryptogenic stroke. METHODS: The cause of cryptogenic stroke was predicted using previously described profiles of differentially expressed genes characteristic of patients with cardioembolic, arterial, and lacunar stroke...

Classic risk factors, including age, smoking, serum cholesterol, diabetes and blood pressure, constitute the basis of present risk prediction models but fail to identify all individuals at risk. The objective of this study was to investigate if genomic and transcriptional patterns improve prediction of ischemic events in patients with established carotid artery disease. Genotype and gene expression profiles were obtained from carotid plaque tissue (n = 126) and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (n = 97) of patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy...

There are no biomarkers that differentiate cardioembolic from large-vessel atherosclerotic stroke, although the treatments differ for each and approximately 30% of strokes and transient ischemic attacks have undetermined etiologies using current clinical criteria. We aimed to define gene expression profiles in blood that differentiate cardioembolic from large-vessel atherosclerotic stroke. Peripheral blood samples were obtained from healthy controls and acute ischemic stroke patients (<3, 5, and 24 h). RNA was purified, labeled, and applied to Affymetrix Human U133 Plus 2...

Sequencing of the human genome and new microarray technology make it possible to assess all genes on a single chip or array. Recent studies show different patterns of gene expression related to different tissues and diseases, and these patterns of gene expression are beginning to be used for diagnosis and treatment decisions in various types of lymphoid and solid malignancies. Because of obvious problems obtaining brain tissue, progress in genomics of neurological diseases has been slow. To address this, we demonstrated that different types of acute injury in rodent brain produced different patterns of gene expression in peripheral blood...

Identifying blood biomarkers may be of particular value in neurologic disorders such as stroke because of the difficulty in directly studying the brain and its blood vessels. Markers of brain injury, inflammation, excitotoxicity, and oxidative damage have been evaluated for their value in stroke diagnosis, treatment, and management, but none have proved to be sensitive or specific enough for routine clinical use. However, new cellular and molecular profiling approaches using the peripheral blood offer the potential for identifying panels of genes and proteins by increasing specificity while maintaining sensitivity...

Our understanding of the mechanisms underlying cerebrovascular atherosclerosis has improved in recent years, but significant gaps remain. New insights into the vascular biological processes that result in ischemic stroke may come from cellular and molecular profiling studies of the peripheral blood. In recent cellular profiling studies, increased levels of a proinflammatory T-cell subset (CD4 (+)CD28 (-)) have been associated with stroke recurrence and death. Expansion of this T-cell subset may occur after ischemic stroke and be a pathogenic mechanism leading to recurrent stroke and death...

BACKGROUND: Direct brain biopsy is rarely indicated during acute stroke. This study uses peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) to determine whether a systemic gene expression profile could be demonstrated in patients with acute ischemic stroke. METHODS AND RESULTS: Using oligonucleotide microarrays, we compared the gene expression profile of an index cohort of 20 patients with confirmed ischemic stroke on neuroimaging studies with that of 20 referent subjects...
