Intracerebral hemorrhage in the mouse altered sleep-wake patterns and activated microglia.

Intracerebral hemorrhage in the mouse altered sleep-wake patterns and activated microglia. Exp Neurol. 2020 Feb 11;:113242 Authors: Giordano KR, Denman CR, Dollish HK, Fernandez F, Lifshitz J, Akhter M, Rowe RK Abstract Sleep-wake disturbances are both a risk factor and reported morbidity for intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). ICH begins with a ruptured blood vessel and blood leakage into the parenchyma. In response to initial damage, pathophysiological processes ensue that both exacerbate and repair damage. Inflammation is a hallmark process of ICH, which includes microglia activation and increased cytokine signaling. Due to the dual role of cytokines as inflammatory signaling proteins and sleep regulatory substances (SRSs), we hypothesized that ICH would activate microglia, increase SRSs, and alter sleep-wake patterns following an experimental model of ICH in the mouse. Male mice were randomized to receive an injection of collagenase (ICH; n = 8) or saline (sham; n = 11) in the striatum of the right hemisphere. Sleep-wake activity was recorded for 6 full days after ICH via noninvasive sleep cages. Blood and tissue were collected at 7 days after ICH to quantify pro-inflammatory cytokines/SRSs (IL-1β, TNF-α, IL-6) and microglia deramification by skeleton analysis. There was an overall injury effect on sleep in mice subjected to ICH at the transition from dark (wake) to light (sleep) at 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 days after ICH compared with sh...

The present study1 further adds to our understating regarding complex role of possible seasonal variations (eg temperature) and their role as risk factors in causation of diseases (eg stroke) in humans. Authors conclude that hot in summer months the risk of ischemic stroke was higher than hemorrhagic stroke.1 Many studies in the past have generated variable evidence regarding the role of weather temperature as a risk factor for stroke (increased risk to lower risk on no risk).1-6 Increasing temperatures can lead to heat related stress thus interfering with sleep and with daily activities of life and resulting negative in health outcomes.

Discussion The term, cerebral palsy, or CP has gone through many iterations with the first description in 1861 by W.J. Little who described it as “The condition of spastic rigidity of the limbs of newborn children.” The most recent definition is from Rosenbaun et al. in 2007 which states it is “a group of permanent disorders of the development of movement and posture, causing activity limitation, that are attributed to non-progressive disturbances that occurred in the developing fetal or infant brain. The motor disorders of cerebral palsy are often accompanied by disturbances of sensation, perception, cog...

Background and Purpose: Sleep related Stroke (SRS) is common and has been associated with cerebral small vessel diseases (SVD) in ischemic strokes (ISs). We tested the hypothesis that SRS is associated with SVD in both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Methods: Prospectively collected data from patients consecutively enrolled after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) related to SVD or after IS were analyzed. Symptom onset was recorded as SRS versus awake. Each ICH was grouped according to lobar and deep locations.

Conclusions: Delirium is common after intracerebral hemorrhage, but severe neurologic deficits may confound its assessment and lead to underdiagnosis. The Intensive Care Delirium Screening Checklist’s inclusion of nonverbal features may make it more accurate than the Confusion Assessment Method for the ICU in patients with neurologic deficits, but novel tools designed for such patients may be warranted.

Conclusion: These findings indicate that TBI differentially affects the levels of sex-steroid hormones in men and women patients. Plasma levels of testosterone could be a good candidate blood marker to predict recovery from unconsciousness after sTBI for male patients. Introduction Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability worldwide and is increasing in incidence (1). Patients with acute severe TBI (sTBI) often develop severe disorders of consciousness, i.e., coma, minimally conscious state or vegetative state. Although many patients may regain consciousness during the 1-month post-TBI p...

Conclusions: Embolism associated with asymptomatic carotid stenosis shows circadian variation with highest rates 4–6 h before midday. This corresponds with peak circadian incidence of stroke and other vascular complications. These and ASED Study results show that monitoring frequency, duration, and time of day are important in ES detection. Introduction Transcranial Doppler (TCD) detected microembolism in the ipsilateral middle cerebral artery (MCA) may help stratify the risk of stroke and other arterial disease complications in persons with advanced (≥60%) asymptomatic carotid stenosis. If so, this techniqu...

Conclusions Stroke comprises ischemic stroke and ICH. The immuno-inflammatory process is involved in neural plasticity following events such as a hemorrhage or ischemic stroke. After ischemia, astrocytes, microglia, and MDMs play important roles during rehabilitation with the modulation of cytokines or chemokines, such as TNF-α and IL-1. Moreover, MiRNAs are also important posttranscriptional regulators in these glial mitochondrial responses to cerebral ischemia. ICH involves processes similar and different to those seen in ischemia, including neuronal injury, astrocytic and microglial/macrophage activation, and neu...
