Abstract

Background Increased nitric oxide (NO) production may result in further brain damage via nitric oxide synthase uncoupling in patients with acute ischaemic stroke by increasing free radical formation and oxidative stress. In this connection, we measured nitrite and nitrate (NO metabolites), ischaemia-modified albumin (IMA) and thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS) in patients with ischaemic stroke.
