Our meta-analysis was designed to obtain the correlation between thrombomodulin (TM) and high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels and the development of cerebral infarction (CI). Case-control studies relevant to the role plasma TM levels and serum hs-CRP levels in the development of CI were retrieved both electronically and manually and further screened according to a predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria. All enrolled studies were analyzed for meta-regression analyses, sensitivity analyses, and assessments of publication bias. Comprehensive Meta-analysis 2. 0 software (CMA 2. 0) was used for statistical analysis. A total of 359 studies were initially retrieved, and 13 studies were eventually recruited into our meta-analysis with a total of 881 CI patients (plasma TM levels: n?=?513; serum hs-CRP levels: n?=?368) and 1067 healthy controls. THE RESULTS
of our meta-analysis suggested that plasma TM levels and serum hs-CRP levels in CI patients were significantly higher than those in healthy controls.In conclusion, increased plasma TM levels and serum hs-CRP levels in CI patients were associated with the development of CI in Asians.
