Identification of key transcription factors associated with cerebral ischemia‑reperfusion injury based on gene‑set enrichment analysis. Int J Mol Med. 2019 Jun;43(6):2429-2439 Authors: Zhang YY, Wang K, Liu YE, Wang W, Liu AF, Zhou J, Li C, Zhang YQ, Zhang AP, Lv J, Jiang WJ Abstract Cerebral ischemia‑reperfusion injury (CIRI) usually causes detrimental complications following reperfusion therapy in stroke patients. The present study systematically investigated the regulatory mechanism involved in the pathogenesis of CIRI using gene set enrichment analysis of the transient middle cerebral artery...

Discussions were focused on the regional and country-specific activities associated with stroke prevention and treatment, including public stroke awareness, prevention strategies, delivery and organisation of care, clinical practice gaps, and unmet needs. The meeting culminated with the adoption of the special Gramado Declaration, signed by all Ministerial officials who attended the meeting. With agreed priorities for stroke prevention, treatment, and research, an opportunity now exists to translate this Declaration into an action plan to reduce the burden of stroke.

These folks have it.I ’m going to go out on a limb and guess that if you work in global health or international development, you might know what frustration feels like.Maybe the project funding cycle gets you down. Maybe you ’ve struggled with a public policy that hurts more people than it helps. It could be that you’ve grappled with shoddy data sets, or corrupt officials, or the fickle winds of politics that so often blow our efforts off course.You ne...

Purpose of review Stroke continuous to be a leading cause of debility in the world. Infections have been associated with stroke, but are not considered as directly causal, and so they are not often included in the traditional stroke workup and management. They are especially important in patients with stroke of undetermined etiology, and in certain patient populations, such as young patients without traditional risk factors, and immunocompromised patients. Recent findings There has been strong evidence for infectious conditions, such as endocarditis, and pathogens, such as varicella zoster in stroke causation, and mor...

ConclusionsIrrespective of age at first CV event, cessation of smoking after a first CV event is related to a substantial lower risk of recurrent vascular events and all-cause mortality. Since smoking cessation is more effective in reducing CV risk than any pharmaceutical treatment of major risk factors, it should be a key objective for patients with vascular disease.

High triglycerides are a common finding on standard cholesterol panels and signifies higher risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, stroke, and fatty liver. While much of the information on a standard cholesterol panel is virtually useless garbage, the triglyceride value is indeed useful, as it represents an accurate gauge of VLDL particles that underlie heart disease risk. Here are natural and easy ways to drop triglycerides (and thereby VLDL particles) from even high levels of 350, 500, 700 mg/dl or more to 60 mg/dl or less, a value associated with magnificent health and marked reduction of risk for...
