Abstract
Physical activity (PhA) prior to stroke has been associated with good outcomes after the ischemic insult, but there is scarce data on the involved molecular mechanisms. Methods: We studied consecutive acute ischemic stroke patients admitted to a single tertiary stroke center. Pre-stroke PhA was evaluated with the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (METS-minute/week). We studied several circulating angiogenic and neurogenic factors at different time-points: Vascular Endothelial Growth ...
