Stroke care in 1960 and now-the case of Ren é Maugras.

CONCLUSION: The entire field of acute stroke care has been revolutionized in the last 60 years. Big data management, telemedicine, software, new brain and vascular imaging techniques, biomarkers, robotics etc., are currently in development and again should lead to new and surprising changes during the next decades.

CONCLUSIONS: The study demonstrates the high frequency of social cognition impairment 3 years after the first-ever stroke in young patients. Doctors and nurses should be sensitized to cognitive handicap after stroke because of difficulties for rehabilitation and returning to work. PMID: 31633560 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: special issue: “Focus on pediatric nephrology”, Colavita L, Salpietro C, Cuppari C, Sallemi A, Di Benedetto V, Concolino D, Marseglia L, D'Angelo G, Gitto E, Betta P, Fede C, Conti G, Chimenz R Abstract Nephrotic Syndrome (NS) is a rare diseases (around 2-7 cases per 100.000 children per year) characterized by proteinuria ≥50 mg/kg/day (or ≥40 mg/m2/h) or a proteinuria/creatininuria ratio>2 (mg/mg); hypoalbuminaemia less than 25 g/l and edema. The protein leakage, with the consequent hypoalbunaemia and edema, due to podocyte alterations may be caused by genetic diseases, immunological ...

In humans, oxidative stress is involved in the development of diabetes, cancer, hypertension, Alzheimers' disease, and heart failure. One of the mechanisms in the cellular defence against oxidative stress is the activation of the Nrf2-antioxidant response element (ARE) signalling pathway. Computation of activity, efficacy, and potency score of ARE signalling pathway and to propose a multi-level prediction scheme for the same is the main aim of the study as it contributes in a big amount to the improvement of oxidative stress in humans. Applying the process of knowledge discovery from data, required knowledge is gathered an...

If I applied to high point at the beginning of September and still haven’t heard anything about an interview should I just go ahead and give up? I see things on here about people getting interviews after 1 week and it’s been nearly 2 months.

In this study, we sought to determine the effect of androgen depletion and dihydrotestoterone (DHT) repletion on a rat model of monocrotaline-induced PAH (MCT-PH) and to further clarify the possible mechanisms. MCT-PH was induced in male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats as well as castrated rats with or without concomitant DHT repletion. Our research showed that rats with PAH exhibited cardiopulmonary alterations including induction of right ventricular systolic pressure (RVSP), pulmonary vascular remodeling, right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH) and fibrosis. Moreover, MCT upregulated expression of vascular cell proliferative prote...

Authors: Varvat J, Montmartin A, Epinat M, Accassat S, Garcin A, Li G, Garnier P, Lambert C, Mismetti P, Mallouk N Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Biological response to clopidogrel prescribed after a non-cardioembolic ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) has been little studied. The aim of our study (AAPIX) was to assess this response and investigate the agreement between different biological assays in revealing poor responders. METHODS: Patients hospitalized following a non-cardioembolic ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) and prescribed clopidogrel were consecutively included fr...

In conclusion, this study indicated that lncRNA ROR could promote the cerebral H/R injury by inhibiting the expression of miR-135a-5p or upregulating the expression of ROCK1/2. And, miR-135a-5p overexpression could improve the cerebral H/R injury by inhibiting the expression of ROCK1/2. PMID: 31632583 [PubMed]

Authors: An F, Zhang J, Zhao C, Chen Z, Li L, Jia Q, Wang L, Ma W, Yang Z, Jia E, Yang Y Abstract This case-control study explored the relationship between SNPs in miR-221 and self-reported essential hypertension, as well as interactions between genetic and environmental factors, in a multiethnic Chinese cohort. A MassArray analysis was performed to genotype 462 patients with essential hypertension and 442 healthy participants. The association between four SNPs in miR-221 and essential hypertension risk was determined by investigating the differences in allelic and genotypic frequencies between case and control gro...

Authors: Sahay S Abstract In early 2019, the 6th World Symposium on Pulmonary Hypertension (WSPH) released an updated document highlighting the advances in the last five years. During the quinquennial event many experts worked together to suggest new changes in the disease diagnosis and management. Since inception of the WSPH in 1973, this is the first time when the hemodynamic definition of pulmonary hypertension (PH) has been updated. These proceedings have re-defined the different hemodynamic types of PH that occur with the left heart disease along with introduction to the genetic testing as part of pulmonary ar...

Authors: Kao CC, Parulekar AD Abstract Despite advances in surgical technique, lung transplantation is associated with worse survival when compared with other solid organ transplantations. Graft dysfunction and infection are the leading causes of mortality in the first 30 days following transplantation. Primary graft dysfunction (PGD) is a form of reperfusion injury that occurs early after transplantation. Management of PGD is mainly supportive with use of lung protective ventilation. Inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation may be used in severe cases. Bacterial pneumonias are the most co...
