Impact of serum omentin-1 concentrations on functional outcome among acute intracerebral hemorrhage patients

Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: Clinica Chimica ActaAuthor(s): Guo-Hai Zhang, Zhe-Hao Ye, Hao-Jie Guan, Mi Guo, Xin-Xiang Zhou, Yu-Yu XuAbstractBackgroundReduced serum omentin-1 concentrations might be related to an increased risk for poor functional outcome after acute ischemic stroke. We intended to explore whether serum omentin-1 could be a promising prognostic biomarker for acute intracerebral hemorrhage.MethodsA total of 104 consecutive patients with hemorrhagic stroke underwent 90-day follow-up. The modified Rankin scale score> 2 was evaluated as worse prognosis. A multivariable logistic model was conFig.d for assessing the relationship between serum omentin-1 concentrations and functional outcome.ResultsSerum omentin-1 concentrations, with the median value of 147.9 ng/ml (interquartile range, 114.7–199.8 ng/ml), were substantially declined with rising modified Rankin scale scores (P

AbstractTranslational genomics represents a broad field of study that combines genome and transcriptome-wide studies in humans and model systems to refine our understanding of human biology and ultimately identify new ways to treat and prevent disease. The approaches to translational genomics can be broadly grouped into two methodologies, forward and reverse genomic translation. Traditional (forward) genomic translation begins with model systems and aims at using unbiased genetic associations in these models to derive insight into biological mechanisms that may also be relevant in human disease. Reverse genomic translation...

AbstractThe association between atrial fibrillation (AF) and thromboembolic (TE) complications in left ventricular assist device (LVAD) recipients is controversial, and there is paucity of large-scale data evaluating the impact of AF on early outcomes after device implantation. Using the National Inpatient Sample, we identified hospitalizations where patients underwent LVAD implantation from 2010 to 2015. Multivariate logistic regression was used to evaluate the association of AF on in-hospital outcomes. A total of 18,378 patients (41.7% with AF) underwent LVAD implantation. Patients with AF were older (59.9 vs. 54.0  years,p

AbstractThere were limited studies comparing the anterior (AC) and posterior (PC) circulation acute ischemic strokes (AIS). Our study aimed to evaluate distinct features of AC and PC strokes regarding clinical, vascular risk, pathogenesis and outcome factors after endovascular procedures. This multicenter prospective study registered 873 patients with acute large occlusion of anterior circulation stroke (ACS) and posterior circulation stroke (PCS). Patients who underwent endovascular procedures were included in this study. The differences in ACS and PCS regarding baseline characteristics, post-operative intracranial hemorr...

Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) and reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) are relatively uncommon neurological disorders, but their detection has been increasing mainly due to clinical awareness and spreading of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Because these syndromes share some common clinical and radiologic features and occasionally occur in the same patient, misdiagnosis may occur. PRES is characterized by varied neurological symptoms including headache, impaired visual acuity or visual field deficit, confusion, disorders of consciousness, seizures, and motor deficits often associated...

Objective: To explore the value of whole-brain perfusion parameters combined with multiphase computed tomography angiography (MP-CTA) in predicting the hemorrhagic transformation (HT) of ischemic stroke. Methods: A total of 64 patients with ischemic stroke who underwent noncontrast computed tomography, computed tomography perfusion imaging, and computed tomography angiography before treatment from August 2017 to June 2019 were included retrospectively. The perfusion parameters cerebral blood volume (CBV), cerebral blood flow (CBF), time to peak (TTP), mean transit time (MTT), time to maximum (Tmax), and permeability surfac...

ConclusionA lower TSH value upon admission may predict an unfavorable functional outcome in AIS patients after EVT, but thyroid hormone levels have no bearing on the risk of HT.

This study examined sex differences in central and peripheral T cell immune responses, systemic effects on gut permeability and microbiota diversity and behavioral outcomes after stroke in aged mice. We hypothesized that there are sex differences in the immune response to stroke in aged animals.MethodsC57BL/6N mice (20-22 months) were subjected to 60 min middle cerebral artery occlusion, or sham surgery. T cells were quantified in brain and blood at 3, 7 and 15 days (d) post-stroke by flow cytometry. Peripheral effects on gut permeability and microbiota diversity, as well as neurological function were assessed up to 14d, a...

Time-critical acute ischemic conditions such as ST-elevation myocardial infarction and acute ischemic stroke are staples in Emergency Medicine practice. While timely reperfusion therapy is a priority, the resultant acute ischemia/reperfusion injury contributes to significant mortality and morbidity. Among therapeutics targeting ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI), remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) has emerged as the most promising. RIC, which consists of repetitive inflation and deflation of a pneumatic cuff on a limb, was first demonstrated to have protective effect on IRI through various neural and humoral mechanisms. It...
