Cerebral atherosclerosis is the most important mechanism for ischemic stroke. However, specific plasma biomarkers to assess atherosclerosis susceptibility are still lacking. Circulating miRNAs have been shown to be promising biomarkers for various pathologic conditions. We investigated whether plasma miR-126 and miR-143 could be used as biomarkers for identifying and evaluating cerebral atherosclerosis. Results showed that miR-143 and miR-126 might participate in the process of atherosclerosis and were minimally affected by cerebral infarction.
