We describe a case of a 55-year-old man who presented with right internal carotid artery dissection and deviation to the left of the protruded tongue. The direction of the deviation of the protruded tongue was unexpected in this patient, because if the XII nerve palsy was due to mass effect related to the intramural hematoma of the dissected artery, a deviation to the right should have happened. Anyway, a subsequent magnetic resonance revealed also an acute ischemic lesion in the right tongue area in the primary motor cortex of the patient, providing a rare, but a fitting neuroanatomical explanation of the deviation and al...

Publication date: Available online 24 April 2019Source: Pharmacological ResearchAuthor(s): Ming-Yan Yang, Qing-Long Yu, Yao-Shi Huang, Guo YangAbstractIschemic stroke is a major cause of mortality and disability worldwide. To date there is no ideal effective treatment. 3, 14, 19-triacetyl andrographolide (CX-10) is a new molecule entity derived from andrographolide. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the neuroprotection of CX-10 against experimental cerebral ischemia. The anti-inflammation of CX-10 was screened using LPS-induced inflammation in vitro and in vivo. Rats were subjected to 1.5 h of middle cere...

Abstract Motor capability recovery after ischemic stroke involves dynamic remodeling processes of neural connectomes in the nervous system. Various neuromodulatory strategies combining direct stimulating interventions with behavioral trainings for motor recovery after ischemic stroke have been developed. However, the effectiveness of these interventions varies widely due to unspecific activation or inhibition of undefined neuronal subtypes. Optogenetics is a functional and structural connection-based approach that can selectively activate or inhibit specific subtype neurons with a higher precision, and it has been...

Conclusion: The present study suggests that lesion patterns observed from DWI of patients with PFO and SIAD might provide clues to the etiology of infarcts. Single lesions (cortical or subcortical) might be a typical feature of PFO associated strokes, while multiple lesions in one vascular territory might be a specific feature of SIAD associated strokes. Introduction Both patent foramen ovale (PFO) and spontaneous intracranial artery dissection (SIAD) are important stroke risk factors, especially in young and middle-aged adults (1–3). About 25% of patients with ischemic stroke are cryptogenic (4), and PFO is pr...

Conclusions: Lifestyle factors, such as physical activity, sleep, and social activity appear to be associated with cognitive function among older people. Physical activity and appropriate durations of sleep and conversation are important for cognitive function. Introduction Dementia is a major public health issue worldwide, with a serious burden for patients, caregivers, and society, as well as substantial economic impacts (1). Although the prevalence of late-life cognitive impairment and dementia are expected to increase in future, effective disease-modifying treatments are currently unavailable. Therefore, unders...

Conclusions: Our results show worldwide efficacy of BM-MSCs in improving functional outcomes in pre-clinical animal models of stroke and support testing these cells in clinical trials in various ranges of time windows using different delivery routes. The continued growing number of publications showing functional benefit of BM-MSCs are now adding limited value to an oversaturated literature spanning 18 years. Researchers should focus on identifying definitive mechanisms on how BM-MSCs lead to benefit in stroke models. Introduction Ischemic stroke is the 5th leading cause of death and the leading cause of long term di...
