ranza Rubattu Epigenetics is the branch of molecular biology that studies modifications able to change gene expression without altering the DNA sequence. Epigenetic modulations include DNA methylation, histone modifications, and noncoding RNAs. These gene modifications are heritable and modifiable and can be triggered by lifestyle and nutritional factors. In recent years, epigenetic changes have been associated with the pathogenesis of several diseases such as diabetes, obesity, renal pathology, and different types of cancer. They have also been related with the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases including ischemi...

AbstractBackgroundThe commonest type of ischemic cerebral stroke in patients with cancer is cryptogenic stroke (CRS), the majority of which are considered cancer-associated strokes (CAS) caused by multiple microemboli associated with hypercoagulation, known as Trousseau syndrome. However, detection of microemboli and diagnosing CAS is difficult. We have therefore developed a scoring system for diagnosing CAS.MethodsWe retrospectively examined data of patients with cancer and stroke between 2006 and 2017. We identified risk factors for CRS, assigned them one or two points, and calculated total scores (Trousseau score) for e...

In this study, we quantified the spatiotemporal burden of mortality attributable to ambient fine particulate matter (PM2.5, which is defined as a mass of particles with an aerodynamic dry diameter of ≤ 2.5 μm) in Taiwan during 2008–2015. Hourly concentrations of PM2.5 were obtained from the Taiwan Air Quality Monitoring Network. According to geographical and climatic characteristics, the Taiwan Environmental Protection Administration has divided Taiwan into seven air quality regions (AQRs): the North (four districts), Chu-Miao (two districts), Central (three districts), Yun-Chia-Nan (three districts...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the risk factors and elucidate the clinical characteristics of cancer-associated ischemic stroke to differentiate it from conventional ischemic stroke in China and East Asia. Between June 2012 and June 2016, a retrospective analysis was performed on 609 stroke patients with cancer. They were divided into 3 groups: cancer-stroke group (CSG, 203 cases), stroke group (SG, 203 cases), and cancer group (CG, 203 cases). The d-dimer levels and diffusion-weighted imaging lesion (DWI) pattern were compared to an age- and sex-matched control group. The most common cancer types were colorectal ca...

Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an important risk factor for ischemic stroke. Cancer may increase the risk both of ischemic stroke and of bleeding. Less is known about risk of ischemic stroke and bleeding among cancer patients with AF, complicating the prevention of ischemic stroke in these patients. Methods: Register based cohort study comprising all Swedish patients hospitalized with a primary diagnosis of AF from July 1, 2005 until December 31, 2014. Patients with cancer diagnosis were compared to the rest of the cohort.

ConclusionThis may be achieved through adoption of stringent air pollution regulations and sustainable city planning. Increase in urban green infrastructures and improving road transportation will reduce PM2.5 levels in urban environment, thereby safeguarding human health from air pollution and improving citizens’ well-being.
