(Reuters Health) - People without heart disease who take a daily aspirin may lower their risk of a heart attack or stroke, but a new study confirms they also have an increased risk of severe internal bleeding.

Conclusions: This study is the first to demonstrate elevated melatonin plasma levels and evolved rhythmicity due to stimulation with naturalistic light. PMID: 30662336 [PubMed - in process]
In conclusion, to our knowledge, this is the first report of the successful evaluation of voltage-gated ion channel gene expression in TIA and RIND animal models. This model will aid future studies in investigating pathophysiological mechanisms, and in developing new therapeutic compounds for the treatment of TIA and RIND. PMID: 30662329 [PubMed - in process]

Aspirin can help reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, but it also increases major bleeding in patients who use it regularly, a new study says.

Here, we explored the alterations of structural covariance caused by subcortical stroke with automated brain volumetry. T1-weighed brain MRI scans were obtained from 63 normal controls (NC), 46 stroke patients with infarct in left internal capsule (CI_L), 33 stroke patients with infarct in right internal capsule (CI_R). We perfor...
This study aimed to assess the statistical relationship between acute stroke lesion locations and impairment of specific aspects of swallow physiology. We performed lesion symptom mapping with 68 retrospectively recruited, acute, first-ever ischemic stroke patients. Lesions were determined on diffusion weighted MRI scans. Post-stroke swallow physiology was determined using the Modified Barium Swallow Study Impairment Profile (MBSImP©™). The relationship between brain lesion location and 17 physiological aspects of swallowing were tested using voxel-based and region-based statistical associations corrected for mu...
Conclusions: VWI can potentially accurately identify and evaluate BCVI in acutely injured trauma patients with excellent interrater reliability.
