Higher cumulative burden of viral and bacterial pathogens may increase the risk of stroke, but the contribution of parasitic infections in relation to cumulative pathogen burden and risk of stroke has rarely been examined. 

Carmen Lahiff-Jenkins Managing Editor of the International Journal of Stroke  spoke to Dr Brad Pearce, Emory University, author of the article 'Viral and parasitic pathogen burden and the association with stroke in a population-based cohort'. Their group aimed to estimate the association of multiple persistent viral and parasitic infections with stroke in a representative sample of adults in the United States.
