Objectives: There is a delicate homeostatic balance between the central nervous system and immune system. Stroke triggers an immunodepressive state to suppress a potential immune reaction directed against neuroglial tissue; however, this supposedly protective response inadvertently results in an infection-prone, and thereby a pro-inflammatory setting. In this study, we assessed the magnitude of cerebral volume loss in the unaffected contralateral hemisphere following stroke, and determined its relationship with inflammatory cascades.
