Mesenchymal stem cells alleviate the early brain injury of subarachnoid hemorrhage partly by suppression of Notch1-dependent neuroinflammation: involvement of Botch

Activated microglia-mediated neuroinflammation has been regarded as an underlying key player in the pathogenesis of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH)-induced early brain injury (EBI). The therapeutic potential of ...

AbstractBackgroundHypozincaemia may develop in critically ill patients, including those with acute brain injury in the early phase after hospital admission. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of hypozincaemia after aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (aSAH) and its association with delayed cerebral ischemia and functional outcome.MethodsWe retrospectively analysed a cohort of 384 patients with SAH admitted to the Neurointensive Care Unit at Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark, in whom at least one measurement of plasma zinc concentration was done during the hospital stay. Hypozincaemia was defined as a...

This study explores the effect of paeoniflorin on early brain injury (EBI) using rat SAH model. We found that paeoniflorin significantly improves neurological deficits, attenuates brain water content and Evans blue extravasation at 72 h after SAH. Paeoniflorin attenuates the oxidative stress following SAH as evidenced by decrease of reactive oxygen species (ROS), malondialdehyde (MDA), 3-Nitrotyrosine, and 8-Hydroxy-2-deoxy guanosine (8-OHDG) level, increase of superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), and catalase activity, and up-regulates the nuclear factor erythroid ‑related factor 2 (Nrf2)/heme ox...

Authors: Teng F, Yin Y, Guo J, Jiang M Abstract Calpain activation may have an important role in early brain injury (EBI) following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). The present study investigated the effects of the calpastatin peptide, a cell-permeable peptide that functions as a potent inhibitor of calpain, on EBI in a rat SAH model. It was revealed that calpastatin peptide treatment significantly reduced SAH-induced body weight loss and neurological deficit at 72 h when compared with untreated SAH controls. Furthermore, the quantification of brain water content and the extravasation of Evans blue dye revealed a sig...

CONCLUSIONS The present study demonstrated that wogonoside prevents brain edema development and apoptosis of neurons in rats by promoting SIRT1 expression and suppression of p53 activation. Therefore, wogonoside has therapeutic potential for the treatment of edema and needs to be investigated further to completely define the mechanism involved. PMID: 32221271 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Serum GPR in cases of sTBI is substantially associated with trauma severity and 30-day mortality. Therefore, the potential value of serum GPR for predicting short-term mortality of sTBI patients is favorable. PMID: 32240656 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION Individuals with HAP during acute hospitalization have worse long-term prognosis and greater hospital resource utilization. Preventing HAP may be cost-effective and improve long-term recovery for individuals with TBI. Future studies should compare the effectiveness of different prophylaxis methods to prevent HAP. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Prospective cohort study, level III.

AbstractThe present study was undertaken to explore the role of total flavones of Camellia (TFC) on cerebral injury following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in rats. We showed that the increase of malondialdehyde (MDA) level in brain tissues, leakages of neuron-specifc enolase (NSE) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) from brain tissues to serum at 48 h after SAH were significantly blocked by TFC treatment. Besides, TFC treatment could reduce brain edema and the Bax/Bcl-2 ratio in hippocampal tissues at mRNA and protein levels at 48 h after SAH. In addition, and the reduction of neurological scores at 7d after SAH were signific...

Objective: Japan has the largest elderly population in the world. As data on the clinical outcomes in elderly patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH), including those older than 80 years, are lacking, we analyzed the characteristics of 54,805 aSAH patients and recorded their treatments and clinical outcomes using a Japanese nationwide inpatient database. Methods: Using the Japanese Diagnostic Procedure Combination database, we identified aSAH patients aged 18 years or older who were hospitalized between July 1, 2010 and March 31, 2016.

In this study, we aim to validate and compare the aneurysmal SAH grading scales in angiogram-negative SAH patients. There were 190 angiogram-negative SAH patients analyzed from January 2014 to December 2015. The outcomes were measured by delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) and poor outcome (defined as modified Rankin Scale (mRS) 3-6 or 4-6). The predictive performance of the grading scales was assessed via evaluation of distribution, trend, association, and discrimination. In regard to the distribution, none of the patients were categorized as HAIR 8 and SAH score 8. Both grading scales indicated a significant trend between sc...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: The Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Early Brain Edema Score (SEBES) system measures cerebral edema on CT and can be used to predict outcome after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). The authors developed a modified SEBES (SEBES 6c) and assessed whether it could predict outcome after SAH better than the SEBES. Furthermore, they verified the age dependency of these scores. METHODS: In this retrospective study, all patients with aneurysmal SAH in the period from January 2011 to February 2017 at a single institution were analyzed. The SEBES, which is based on the absence of visible sulci at two defined CT ...
