Photo: Marcus Rose   The growing number of workers and union activists facing mental health issues need better support, delegates at the UNISON water, environment and transport conference in Liverpool declared today. Paul Smith, from Yorkshire Water, said employers were ignorant about mental health. “They pile on the pressure and there are far too many heart attacks, far too many suicides, far too many strokes,” he declared. This is particularly true in contact centres, where employers not only expect members to deal with customer queries within specific timescales but also face restrictions on the number ...

Conclusion: Many predictors of ICH were identified, however, given the lack of robust evidence, larger cohort studies should be prioritized to confirm these predictors. PMID: 31200607 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, predictors of LOS were identified using a survival model that considered age as a continuous variable, separate comorbidities, and the discharge destination. Our findings are consistent with earlier reports and confirm the strong associations linking LOS to diabetes, day of surgery, and discharge destination in France. We also identified predictors of discharge to rehabilitation and of readmission within 30 days.Level of evidenceIV, retrospective observational cohort study.

In conclusion, our study provides novel evidence that rhFGF21 can enhance the angiogenesis and migration of HBMECs through the formation of the FGF21/FGFR1/β-klotho complex via PPARγ activation and eNOS upregulation, indicating that FGF21 is a potential therapeutic angiogenic agent for the treatment of human brain injury.

Conclusions: Our novel approach developed for this review allowed the identification of the common themes/topics that intersect the concepts of neuroplasticity, stroke recovery, and learning. These may be synthesised to advance a neuroscience-informed approach to stroke rehabilitation. We also identified gaps in available literature using this approach. These may help guide future targeted research. PMID: 31191637 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Stroke remains a leading cause of disability worldwide. Recently, we have established an animal model of stroke that results in delayed impairment in spatial memory, allowing us to better investigate cognitive deficits. Young and aged brains show different recovery profiles after stroke; therefore, we assessed aged-related differences in poststroke cognition. As neurotrophic support diminishes with age, we also investigated the involvement of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in these differences. Young (3-6 months old) and aged (16-21 months old) mice were trained in operant touchscreen chambers t...
