ESOC 2022 | Biomarkers in thrombotic and embolic stroke

Ana Catarina Fonseca, MD, PhD, University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal, discusses recent updates on biomarkers associated with carotid artery atheroma and cardioembolic stroke. New evidence has demonstrated that interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels are related to prognosis and risk of recurrence in patients with carotid artery atheroma. N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) remains the most widely studied biomarker in cardioembolic stroke. This interview took place at European Stroke Organisation Conference 2022 in Lyon, France.
