Clinical potential of pre-reperfusion hypothermia in ischemic injury.

Clinical potential of pre-reperfusion hypothermia in ischemic injury. Neurol Res. 2019 Apr 28;:1-7 Authors: Han Y, Rajah GB, Hussain M, Geng X Abstract The damage caused by ischemic stroke is mostly refractory to medical therapies and amounts to a substantial degree of mortality and morbidity in the world. The core tenet of treatment for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is to save 'reversible' ischemic tissue (ischemic penumbra) as quickly as possible within a limited therapeutic time window. The neuroprotective effect of hypothermia has been proven previously in a large number of animal experiments and clinical trials. Some of these animal and human studies have shown that pre-reperfusion hypothermia can reduce myocardial infarction and improve clinical outcomes. However, to date, there is little research about hypothermia before reperfusion in the animal model and human study of AIS. This review will explore possible benefits of the application of pre-reperfusion hypothermia in the setting of AIS. PMID: 31030645 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, we examined the benefits of early-onset, lifelong AET on predictors of health, inflammation, and cancer incidence in a naturally aging mouse model. Lifelong, voluntary wheel-running (O-AET; 26-month-old) prevented age-related declines in aerobic fitness and motor coordination vs. age-matched, sedentary controls (O-SED). AET also provided partial protection against sarcopenia, dynapenia, testicular atrophy, and overall organ pathology, hence augmenting the 'physiologic reserve' of lifelong runners. Systemic inflammation, as evidenced by a chronic elevation in 17 of 18 pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokin...

We live in an era of biotechnology, of tremendous year by year increases in the capacity to engineer the fundamental mechanisms of life and disease. The research community and funding institutions should aim high, aim at the new and the amazing, rather than slouching forward in the service of crafting yet more marginal, incremental improvements to existing forms of therapy. Sadly, mediocrity rules when it comes to all too much of the research community. Vision is lacking, and far too few people are willing to tread the roads yet untraveled. Why is it necessary to spend so much time and effort to convince people to f...

DISCUSSION: With hypothermia being a good standard neuroprotectant reference, these results provide additional proof of principle for EGF and GHRP-6 co-administration as a potentially neuroprotective stroke therapy. PMID: 27665924 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study found that though it is often associated with coronary artery disease (CAD), it can also occur in those without significant CAD. It was not specifically associated with disease of right coronary artery disease. This cardioinhibitory response may be a manifestation of the Bezold-Jarisch reflex. Bezold-Jarisch reflex inhibits sympathetic activity (sympathetic withdrawal) and increases parasympathetic activity, resulting in bradycardia, which may be associated with vasodilatation, nausea and hypotension. Bezold-Jarisch has been described in the setting of inferior wall infarction and coronary angiography. Origin...

Conclusion: Automated peritoneal lavage system is a safe and ultrarapid method to induce and maintain hypothermia, which appears feasible in cardiac arrest patients and awake patients with acute myocardial infarction. The shivering response appeared to be delayed and much reduced with this technology, diminishing metabolic disorders associated with cooling and minimizing sedation requirement. Our data suggest that ultrarapid cooling could prevent subtle neurologic damage compared with slower cooling. This will need to be confirmed in direct comparative studies.

Abstract Despite improvements in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) quality, defibrillation technologies, and implementation of therapeutic hypothermia, less than 10 % of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) victims survive to hospital discharge. New resuscitation therapies have been slow to develop, in part, because the pathophysiologic mechanisms critical for resuscitation are not understood. During cardiac arrest, systemic cessation of blood flow results in whole body ischemia. CPR and the restoration of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), both result in immediate reperfusion injury of the heart that is char...
