This study has correlated the functional recovery achieved by patients treated in integrated home care following a stroke or a fracture with biochemical parameters, lipid profile and nutritional status. The study involved 51 patients (average age 79.5 years) who were receiving home rehabilitation treatment. A statistically significant association between functional improvement and lower levels of fibrinogen, PCR, LDL-cholesterol and BUN emerged. The study supports the need for further investigation on the predictive role of inflammatory markers.
