AbstractPurposeCirculating caspase-3 levels at 24  h of ischemic stroke were found to be associated with poorer functional neurological outcome in a previous study. The aim of this study was to determine whether there is an association between serum caspase-3 levels and early mortality in patients with malignant middle cerebral artery infarction ( MMCAI).MethodsWe included patients with MMCAI defined as computer tomography showing ischemic changes in more than 50% of the middle cerebral artery territory and Glasgow Coma Scale  ≤ 8. Serum caspase-3 levels at days 1, 4, and 8 of MMCAI were determined.Re...

You get tired of playing the game - or banging your head against stone walls.  For weeks, I have been resolved to appear at tonight'sPublic Hearing at the old Asheboro Courthouse - in which Randolph County Commissioners will take up the matter of going into massive debt (by applying for a loan from the state) to keep Randolph Health from closing its doors in late January or February.But I cannot . . . and will not even try to . . . cram 22 years into 3 minutes.  I can actually make the statement in 8 or 9 minutes, but not 3.  The hospital has pontificated from its various soapboxes and manipulated the m...

Publication date: Available online 20 November 2019Source: Neuroscience LettersAuthor(s): Jong Youl Kim, Ji Won Kim, Midori A. YenariAbstractHeat shock proteins (HSPs) are chaperones that catalyze the refolding of denatured proteins. In addition to their ability to prevent protein denaturation and aggregation, the HSPs have also been shown to modulate many signaling pathways. Among HSPs, the inducible 70 kDa HSP (HSP70) has especially been shown to improve neurological outcome in experimental models of brain ischemia and injury. HSP70 can modulate various aspects of the programmed cell death pathways and inflammatio...

According to a Gallup poll released in 2019, Americans are among the most stressed people in the world. We are connected to our smartphones 24/7, and we seldom take vacations. Can all this stress put you at risk for a stroke? Stress is also personal. Some people can handle high-stress situations, while others may not be able to function under stress. Dr. Andrew J. Ringer, chairman of Mayfield Brain and Spine, says there isn’t an easy answer to that question. “There are no studies that directly…

Authors: Li YM, Jiang C, He L, Li XX, Hou XX, Chang SS, Lip GYH, Du X, Dong JZ, Ma CS Abstract BACKGROUND There is a growing recognition of sex-related disparities in atrial fibrillation (AF). However, limited data is available in Chinese AF patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS We compared symptoms, quality of life (QoL), and treatment of AF according to sex from the China AF Registry study. RESULTS We studied 14 723 patients with non-valvular AF, of whom 5645 patients (38.3%) were female. Women were older than men (67.5±10.6 vs. 62.2±12.2). Compared to men, women had more comorbidities and a higher proport...
