Plasma desmoplakin I and vascular post-stroke recurrence The present study used proteomics to identify novel plasma biomarkers associated with vascular recurrence in post-stroke ischemic patients. High plasma desmoplakin I levels in patients taking statins in the three first months after the first ischemic stroke were associated with protection against a new vascular event in one year of follow-up. This result suggests that plasma desmoplakin I may serve as a biomarker for good response to statins in post-stroke ischemic patients.
