Study Objectives:To evaluate continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment in patients with moderate to severe sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) after an ischemic stroke.Methods:We identified patients included in the Acute Stroke Registry and Analysis of Lausanne (ASTRAL) who underwent polysomnography after an ischemic stroke. We compared patients without significant SDB (apnea-hypopnea index [AHI]

Study Objectives:We aimed to elucidate the prevalence of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), effect of SDB severity on the functional outcome, and feasibility of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy in patients with subacute stroke.Methods:We recruited 433 consecutive patients (mean age: 66.5 years, 271 men) admitted to our rehabilitation wards for subacute stroke (8 to 90 days after onset) from August 2011–November 2013, who had undergone at least one successful sleep study within 4 weeks after admission to the wards. We investigated the prevalence of SDB, defined as a respiratory event index (REI)≥ 5...

AbstractDysfunction of energy metabolism exerts a central role in triggering neuron death following cerebral ischemia. Neuronal energy metabolism is highly dependent on glucose. O-GlcNAcylation, a post-translational modification, is a novel pro-survival pathway that modulates glucose homeostasis in ischemic stroke. Here, we explored whether activation O-GlcNAcylation and maintaining energy homeostasis mediated the neuroprotective effect of 2-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethyl-2-acetamido-2-deoxy- β-d-pyranoside, a synthetic salidroside analog (named SalA-4  g) which was previously developed in our laboratory. For in vivo ana...

In this study, we investigated the function of the lncRNA Oprm1 in cerebral I/R injury and explored the underlying mechanism. An oxygen-glucose deprivation model in N2a cells was utilized to mimic cerebral I/R injury in vitro. Trypan blue staining, terminal deoxytransferase-mediated dUTP-biotin nick end labelling and caspase-3 were measured to evaluate apoptosis. Middle cerebral artery occlusion was performed in mice to evaluate the function of lncRNA Oprm1 in vivo. Real-time PCR and western blotting were used to measure the expression levels of lncRNA Opmr1, caspase-3, miR-155, GATA binding protein 3 (GATA3) and nuclear f...

Authors: Struß N, Bauersachs J, Welte T, Hohlfeld JM Abstract Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) primarily affects the lungs; however, cardiovascular conditions are among the most common extrapulmonary comorbidities. Besides shared risk factors such as cigarette smoking, pathophysiological connections between the lung and the heart have been identified as mediators of reduced cardiac output. Recent research has focused on hyperinflation of the lung as a pulmonary cause for heart dysfunction. Hyperinflation is a typical lung abnormality seen in COPD; it is characterized by increased residua...
