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.
Nitric oxide and oxidative stress; Cytokines and leukocytes; Vascular wall factors; Mechanisms of excitotoxicity; Gene expression in ischemia: Role in cell death and cell protection; Growth factors; Therapeutic window; Emerging stroke
