This therapy was then shown not to be effective for the primary or secondary prevention of cerebrovascular disease. VI. BIOMARKERS OF RISK Early recognition of the apparent paradox between lipid levels and stroke incidence has played a major role in examining the effects of statin therapy and the search for inflammatory biomarkers that might be strong determinants of stroke [66]. Epidemiological evidence, animal studies, angiographic and ultrasound studies in humans, and a limited number of clinical trials suggest that vitamins C and E may be protective and that folate, B6, and B12, by lowering homocysteine levels, may reduce stroke.

In the United States, the community of Rochester, Minnesota has been particularly well represented in reports of incidence because of the interconnected medical reporting system of the Mayo Clinic and other hospitals in the community [7,13,28]. In the period from 1955 to 1969, the average annual incidence rate for TIA was 31 per 100,000 population, and increased from 1 per 100,000 in those under 45 years of age to 68 per 100,000 in those 75 years old or older. This increase in incidence with age is seen consistently in other studies as well [5,21,29].
