Cerebrovascular Diseases

Nineteenth Princeton Stroke Conference

Drawing from the most recent advances in molecular aspects of stroke and developments in imaging technology, the meeting focused on existing controversies in the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of stroke. Discussions on apoptosis, programmed cell death, cytokines, growth factors, nitric oxide, oxidative stress, therapeutic window, and functional, diffusion-perfusion-weighted MR imaging provided the focus for fruitful interchange.
