There is no effective treatment for spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (sICH). We examined 46 patients with sICH within 48 hours after onset of symptoms, aiming to assess the predictive value of C-reactive protein (CRP) and lipid hydroperoxides (ROOH) on "first-week mortality" and "clinical outcome at discharge" by binary logistic regression. We found that serum CRP and hematoma volume were predictors of short-term mortality. Although serum ROOH level was positively correlated with mortality, it did not predict early lethal outcome. Serum ROOH concentration, however, was a predictor of poor clinical outcome in sICH survivors. After confirmation of the results obtained through observing a larger group of patients, an oxidative stress marker could be used as an additional criterion for patient stratification, especially when severe disability is expected and supplementary therapeutic approaches are urgent.
