OBJECTIVE: Past ischemic stroke (IS) patients display suppressed adiponectin (ADPN) levels a few months after disease onset. It is still unclear whether hypoadiponectinemia is already present by the early stages of stroke or occurs as a delayed effect of the acute ischemic reaction. In the present study we investigated ADPN levels acutely after an IS.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Serum ADPN was measured in 82 consecutive acute IS patients, and 30 stroke-free subjects of similar age and sex distributions.
RESULTS: Patients had significantly lower ADPN levels than controls. Higher ADPN was significantly associated with reduced odds for IS accounting for age, sex and high-density lipoproteins. This association was strengthened after further adjustments for potential confounders. ADPN levels remained suppressed even 6 months after stroke.
CONCLUSIONS: ADPN is significantly suppressed already by the early phases of stroke, and remains unchanged 6 months later. We propose a stable-over-time anti-inflammatory role of ADPN in IS, unrelated to the acute ischemic reaction.
