Outcome in Survivors of Middle Cerebral Artery Territory Ischemic Stroke: Can it be predicted?

Conclusions: Our findings show that disability assessment late in the first week after onset of stroke using NIHSS accurately forecast outcome at one month after onset of stroke. The MMSE too is not expected to change at 1 month. Those with aphasia are expected to have greater disability. Based on or study we recommend that stroke patients should be assessed with NIHSS and MMSE before discharge, to explain the prognosis of the patient. Also more intense counselling on controlling blood pressure and diabetes as well as abstinence from smoking should be undertaken routinely. PMID: 31309796 [PubMed - in process]

This article covers the publically available data on therapeutic strategies that address the underlying cause of SMA and clinical data available on approved treatments and drugs in the pipeline.Expert opinion: The newer therapeutic options in SMA have a good safety profile and deliver a therapeutic benefit in most patients. It is essential that the recommended standards of care are delivered along with the drugs for the best outcomes. No biomarkers to distinguish responders from non-responders are available; it is important that biomarkers be identified. Early treatment is essential for the maximum efficacy of the newly av...

Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Molecular and Cell Biology of LipidsAuthor(s): Quan-Fei Zhu, Jing-Wen Yan, Jian Ni, Yu-Qi FengAbstractFatty acid esters of hydroxy fatty acids (FAHFAs) are a new class of endogenous lipids with anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic effects, having the potential to treat type 2 diabetes (T2D). In view of the important regulatory and therapeutic actions of FAHFAs on age-related diseases such as T2D, we hypothesized that they may also play crucial roles in the growth, development, and aging process. Here, we investigated the FAHFA fo...
