Not yet recruiting

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The investigators expect to find higher levels of both classical and minor antiphospholipid (APL) antibodies among the stroke cases. Furthermore, the investigators expect to find not only classical APLA but also minor antibodies.
The investigators believe that minor antibodies have a major role in the hypercoagulability state.


Trial Design

  • Observation: Case Control
  • Perspective: Prospective
  • Sampling: Non-Probability Sample

Trial Population

on a bank of 207 stroke patients serum samples, and also on 40 healthy controls. The samples were collected during the acute phase of the ischemic event.
