composition of intestinal microbiome [ Time Frame: change between day 1, day 4, day 7, day 14 after stroke ]
The composition of the intestinal metagenome / microbiome will be determined by analyzing the 16S rRNA by 454 Pyrosequencing.

test of correlation between most changed group of bacteria with changes in immunological parameters (HLA-DR) [ Time Frame: days 1, 4, 7 after stroke ]
Analysis of correlation between changes in microbiome (most changed group of bacteria, e.g. lactobacilli) with changes in immunological parameters (e.g. HLA-DR, IL-6, IL-10, CD4-lymphocytes from blood samples).

Influence of Stroke on the Composition of Intestinal Microbiota
Influence of Stroke on the Composition of Intestinal Microbiota (GUTSTROKE)
The aim of the study is to verify the hypothesis that the microbial colonisation of the gut is changed in patients after stroke and that the gut microbiome of severely affected stroke patients differs from that of patients with only a short disruption of blood circulation in the brain (transient ischemic attack, TIA). For this, the composition of gut microbiota in stool samples will be analyzed by 454 pyrosequencing. Further, the correlation of stroke-associated changes in the microbiome with immunological parameters will be analyzed.
