SMARTCap Stroke Study: A Field Deployable Blood Test for Stroke "SMARTCAP"


Phase N/A Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

The hypothesis is that a stroke causes release of purines from brain into blood and that this is a very early biomarker of brain ischaemia. The investigators propose a simple blood test of substances (the purines) that result from cellular metabolism and are produced in excess when brain cells are starved of oxygen and glucose (as occurs during a stroke).
