ConclusionsThe low lead level today means more effect of COPD on the occurrence of heart attack and stroke. More studies required to understand the pathways of the association of COPD, CVD and lead due to their shared risk factors.

CONCLUSION: Gluconeogenesis was induced in human neural cells exposed to fine particles (DEP), in association with cell damage and oxidative stress. These findings suggest that the pathogenesis of cerebrovascular injury due to fine particle pollutant exposure may proceed through derangements in gluconeogenic metabolism. ABBREVIATIONS: DEP: diesel exhaust particles, ICA: intracranial atherosclerosis, ROS: reactive oxygen species. PMID: 31099309 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 18 May 2019Source: Journal of Pharmacological SciencesAuthor(s): Ying Tang, Ming-Yue Li, Xin Zhang, Xing Jin, Jing Liu, Ping-He WeiAbstractStroke is one of the leading causes of long-term disabilities worldwide. Although exposure to an enriched environment (EE) initiated in the acute phase after stroke has neuroprotective effects and improves stroke outcome, it remains unclear whether EE has positive effects when started in a delayed time frame. Here we show that exposure to EE in the delayed phase notably ameliorates the ischemia-induced impairments in neurological functions and spatial ...

ConclusionsIn patients with ACS, ticagrelor is more efficacious in protecting against new ischemic events and mortality than clopidogrel irrespective of the presence of HF. There is no difference between ticagrelor or clopidogrel treatment in new-onset HF post-ACS.

A total of 251 consecutive patients with acute ischemic stroke were recruited. They were divided into three groups depending on whether PSD had occurred at 2 weeks or 3 months since stroke: early-onset PSD, late-onset PSD, and non-depressed group. Microarray assay was condu...

The FDA-approved thrombolytics such as Tissue Plasminogen Activator, Streptokinase etc. are used to lyse the clots in thrombotic disorders such as myocardial infarction, stroke...

Imagine leaving the hospital after suffering a heart attack without being treated for hypertension or being started on a beta blocker. What would we think of the hospital where patients are never educated about the relationship between treating hypertension and reducing myocardial infarction and stroke risk? Unfortunately, this happens every day with osteoporosis and fractures... [Read More]

Abstract Cerebral ischemia can occur at any stage in life, but clinical consequences greatly differ depending on the developmental stage of the affected brain structures. Timing of the lesion occurrence seems to be critical, as it strongly interferes with neuronal circuit development and determines the way spontaneous plasticity takes place. Translational stroke research requires the use of animal models as they represent a reliable tool to understand the pathogenic mechanisms underlying the generation, progression, and pathological consequences of a stroke. Moreover, in vivo experiments are instrumental to invest...

Abstract Noninvasive brain stimulation (NBS), such as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) or transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), has been used in stroke patients with motor impairment. NBS can help recovery from brain damage by modulating cortical excitability. However, the efficacy of NBS varies among individuals. To obtain insights of responsiveness to the efficacy of NBS, we investigated characteristic changes of the motor network in responders and nonresponders of NBS over the primary motor cortex (M1). A total of 21 patients with subacute stroke (13 males, mean age 59.6 ± 11...
