Translated title of the contribution: POST-STROKE IMMUNODEPRESSION MECHANISMS

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Immunodepression refers to a condition when immune system has reduced capacity to fulfill its functions therefore leading to infection. Infections develop frequently after stroke, and have been associated with poor clinical and functional outcome. Several studies show ischemic stroke, leads to impairment of immune responses, which increases susceptibility of an infection. This review analyzes the mechanisms of post-stroke immunodepression involving nervous system, such as adrenergic pathway, cholinergic pathway, or HPA axis, comprehensively based on recent clinical and experimental evidences. A better understanding of immune system modification after stroke could encourage further studies regarding immunomodulation therapy use in fighting infection
