[Immune responses and neuroimmune modulation in the pathogenesis of acute ischemic stroke and poststroke infections]

PAPP Viktória, MOLNÁR Tihamér, BÁNÁTI Miklós, ILLÉS Zsolt

[Acute-onset cerebrovascular diseases are connected to a number of immunological changes. Here, we summarize immune responses participating in the evolution of atherosclerotic plaques and poststroke local immune responses in the injured CNS as well as in the systemic circulation. Ischemic injury of the CNS alters the balanced neuroimmune modulation resulting in CIDS, the central nervous system injury-induced immune deficiency syndrome. Due to the immunodepression and reduced pro-inflammatory... tovább »
