Effect of Stroke Education Pamphlets vs a 12-Minute Culturally Tailored Stroke Film

This cluster randomized clinical trial of stroke preparedness among black and Hispanic churchgoers evaluates the effect of culturally tailored 12-minute stroke films on stroke preparedness vs the usual care practice of distributing stroke education pamphlets.

The opioid epidemic has plagued the United States with high levels of abuse and poor quality of life for chronic pain patients requiring continuous use of opioids. New drug discovery efforts have been implemented to mitigate this epidemic; however, new medications are still limited by low efficacy and/or high side effect and abuse potential. Intermittent fasting (IF) has recently been shown to improve a variety of pathological states, including stroke and neuroinflammation. Numerous animal and human studies have shown the benefits of IF in these disease states, but not in pain and opioid treatment. We thus subjected male a...

Abstract All neurologists need to be able to recognise and treat cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT). It is difficult to diagnose, partly due to its relative rarity, its multiple and various clinical manifestations (different from 'conventional' stroke, and often mimicking other acute neurological conditions), and because it is often challenging to obtain and interpret optimal and timely brain imaging. Although CVT can result in death or permanent disability, it generally has a favourable prognosis if diagnosed and treated early. Neurologists involved in stroke care therefore also need to be aware of the treatments f...

The focus of this review is the role of complement-mediated phagocytosis in retinal and neurological diseases affecting the visual system. Complement activation products opsonize synaptic material on neurons for phagocytic removal, which is a normal physiological process during development, but a pathological process in several neurodegenerative diseases and conditions. We discuss the role of complement in the refinement and elimination of synapses in the retina and lateral geniculate nucleus, both during development and in disease states. How complement and aberrant phagocytosis promotes injury to the visual system is dis...

Getting the right care in a timely manner is important in medical emergencies. In the event that you or a loved one suffers a stroke, time is especially critical. “In the event of a stroke, a delay of only 15 minutes in treatment greatly decreases your chances not only of making a full recovery, but also being able to walk or live independently, and in many cases, of survival,” says Christopher Zammit, MD, a critical care specialist and emergency physic ian with TriHealth, which offers a network…

Authors: Zhang Y, Liu Y, Zhu J, Zhai S, Jin R, Wen C Abstract The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) formula is the main treatment method of TCM. A formula often contains multiple herbs where core herbs play a critical therapeutic effect for treating diseases. It is of great significance to find out the core herbs in formulae for providing evidences and references for the clinical application of Chinese herbs and formulae. In this paper, we propose a core herb discovery model CHDSC based on semantic analysis and community detection to discover the core herbs for treating a certain disease from large-scale literatur...

Today, approximately 20% of the U.S. population — about 60 million people — live in rural areas, which make up 97% of the land area in the United States. People living in rural America have less access to health care and are more likely than residents of urban areas to die from chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, and chronic lower respiratory disease. Moreover, long-standing systemic health and social inequities have put many rural residents at increased risk of getting COVID-19. The rural/urban inequities in health and health care warrant more rigorous and innovative scientific research t...
