Whole organs are difficult to study in minute detail, as they have to be sliced into extremely thin sections to map out their interior. CT and magnetic resonance imaging help to an extent, but researchers at the Helmholtz Zentrum München, Ludwig...

Stroke is a major cause of death and disability across the world, with many reviews from the Cochrane Stroke Group providing evidence on the effects of treatments and rehabilitation interventions. In November 2019, the Group published their update of their review of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and we asked lead author, Gillian Mead from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, to tell us more.

This study examined whether lower limb muscle wasting during the acute phase is associated with the dependent ambulation status at 3 months after stroke.MethodsIn this observational cohort study, we measured the quadriceps muscle thickness in the paretic and non-paretic limbs within 1 and 3 weeks after admission using ultrasonography in non-ambulatory patients with acute stroke. Patients were categorized into two groups based on their ambulation ability: dependent, functional ambulation category (FAC) 0–3 and independent, FAC 4–5) at 3 months after stroke.ResultsIn total, 55 patients were include...

(NIH/National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke) Researchers at the National Institutes of Health found evidence that specific immune cells may play a key role in the devastating effects of cerebral malaria, a severe form of malaria that mainly affects young children. The results, published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, suggest that drugs targeting T cells may be effective in treating the disease. The study was supported by the NIH Intramural Research Program.

The 2016 review for the US Preventive Services Task Force on statins for prevention of cardiovascular disease in adults had errors in the analysis of statins vs placebo and cardiovascular mortality. For the JUPITER trial, we interpreted “MI, stroke or cardiovascular death” as reported in the main trial publication as “myocardial death, stroke death, or cardiovascular death,” when it meant “nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke, or cardiovascular death.” Therefore, the analysis erroneously included nonfatal myo cardial infarction and stroke events (83/8901 vs 157/8901 in the ros...

A risk-based prevention strategy is the most widely accepted approach to guide clinician-patient decision-making for prevention of coronary artery disease (CAD). According to this approach, the intensity of prevention efforts is matched to the estimated risk of the individual. American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines currently recommend pooled cohort equations for initial risk assessment, which integrate age, systolic blood pressure, total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, smoking status, and treatment for hypertension and diabetes to provide race- and sex-specific estimates of ...
