Abstract

No evidence is currently provided on the involvement of uric acid (UA) and Cu/Zn Superoxide Dismutase (Cu/Zn SOD) in functional recovery of stroke patients after neurorehabilitation. For this purpose, the relationship between UA and Cu/Zn SOD plasma levels and clinical and functional outcome measures were analysed in twenty-five post-acute stroke patients undergoing intensive neurorehabilitation. UA and Cu/Zn SOD plasma levels were evaluated in fifteen healthy subjects as control values. Neurorehabilitation was associated with improved scores (P
