Contributor : Naoya KidaniSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Rattus norvegicusCrossed cerebellar diaschisis (CCD) is hypoperfusion and hypometabolism in the contralateral cerebellar hemisphere caused by supratentorial lesion. We evaluated chronological change of cerebellar blood flow (CbBF) and gene expressions in cerebellum using a rat model of focal ischemic stroke.

Authors: White H, Venkatesh B, Jones M, Kruger PS, Walsham J, Fuentes H Abstract Objective: Although extensively studied in children, the safety and tolerability of ketone supplementation in adults is unclear, particularly in the acute brain injury population. The purpose of this study was to examine the feasibility and safety of inducing ketosis using an enteric ketogenic formulation and determine its impact on intracranial and cerebral perfusion pressures and metabolic parameters.Methods: Prospective interventional Phase II trial of ventilated critically ill patients with acute brain injury administered a ketogen...

AbstractBackgroundThe optimal mitral prosthesis in young patients is unclear. This systematic review and meta ‐analysis were performed to compare outcomes between bileaflet mechanical mitral valve replacement (mMVR) and bioprosthesis mitral valve replacement (bioMVR) for MVR patients aged less than 70 years.MethodsWe searched MEDLINE and EMBASE databases from inception to July 2018 for studies comparing surgical outcomes of mMVR vs bioMVR.ResultsThere were 14 observational studies with 20  219 patients (n = 14 658 mMVR and n = 5561 bioMVR). Patients receiving an mMVR were younger...

Conclusions: In this observational, routine-practice study, patients in all groups displayed a benefit from abobotulinumtoxinA treatment, supporting the effectiveness of treatment for patients at various disease stages. Although the data revealed some trends in favor of early vs. late treatment, we did not find strong evidence for a significant benefit of early vs. late start of treatment in terms of reduction in MAS scores.

Demystifying Medicine Lecture Series Although the fundamental molecular pathophysiology of sickle cell anemia was elucidated in studies of this genetic disease starting more than 70 years ago, it is only in about the last two decades that this knowledge has led to specific therapies. Indeed in the last decade serious attention has turned to the possibility of a genetic cure of this condition. Have we finally cured sickle cell anemia? Not quite, but we may be on the cusp. Really. In a dozen clinical trials planned or underway, some at the NIH Clinical Center, researchers are applying gene therapy to cure this well-studied g...
