Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) plays important roles in brain plasticity and repair, and it influences stroke outcomes in animal models. Circulating BDNF concentrations are lowered in patients with traumatic brain injury, and low BDNF predicts poor recovery after this injury. We sought to investigate whether circulating concentrations of BDNF are altered in the acute phase of ischemic stroke and whether they are associated with short- or long-term functional outcome.
