Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate nocturnal and diurnal urinary melatonin excretion in a group of ischaemic stroke patients, and to verify if a possible impairment of this excretion could be linked with some changes of immunological and neuro-psychic status. We assessed 13 ischaemic stroke patients and five healthy controls for nocturnal urinary melatonin excretion, which was found to be impaired in stroke patients (patients, 0.05 ± 0.01 ng/ml; controls, 30 ± 3.0ng/ml; P
