Journal of stroke and cerebrovascular diseases : the official journal of National Stroke Association. 2020 Apr;29(29). 104670 p. PMID: 32057650 [PubMed] PMCID: PMC7085346 NIHMSID: NIHMS1569270.
Elevated serum apolipoprotein B and the apolipoprotein B/A1 ratio have been associated with ischemic stroke and intracranial atherosclerotic disease. We sought to assess the relationship between serum levels of apolipoprotein B, apolipoprotein A1, and the apolipoprotein B/A1 ratio with ischemic stroke subtypes and large artery atherosclerosis location.
