Authors: Geng W, Tang H, Luo S, Lv Y, Liang D, Kang X, Hong W Abstract Although adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs) exert their therapeutic potential in ischemic stroke, the migration of ADSCs in injured area is not apparently observed after intravenous administration. ADSCs are an important source of exosomes which hold great promise as an endogenous drug delivery system for the treatment of cerebral ischemia given their ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. Here we investigated whether ADSCs-derived exosomes mediated miRNAs transfer and thus promoted neurological recovery after stroke. We first proved that miR...

This study defines a new clinically relevant concept of T-cell senescence-mediated inflammatory responses in the pathophysiology of abnormal glucose homeostasis. We also found that T-cell senescence is associated with systemic inflammation and alters hepatic glucose homeostasis. The rational modulation of T-cell senescence would be a promising avenue for the treatment or prevention of diabetes.

Authors: Kotlęga D, Gołąb-Janowska M, Meller A, Bajer-Czajkowska A, Zembroń-Łacny A, Nowacki P, Banach M Abstract Introduction: Statins are widely used in stroke patients. The AHA/ASA guidelines recommend aggressive statin therapy in atherosclerotic stroke patients. Their beneficial effects are due to both their hypolipemic and pleiotropic properties. The aim of this study was to establish potential benefits from statin use in ischemic stroke patients with the diagnosis of atrial fibrillation (AF). Material and methods: Ischemic stroke patients with AF were enrolled in the study. Group I, the statin group ...
