Authors: Mansour Y, Kulesza R Abstract Stroke is a common morbidity and a frequent cause of disability and even death. The impact of cerebrovascular events are dictated by the brain region involved and can be complicated by anatomical variations. One of the most common variations impacting the cerebrovasculature is the presence of a fetal posterior cerebral artery. This vessel arises from the internal carotid artery instead of the basilar artery and is often associated with more extensive injury in cerebrovascular events. Herein, we report the case of a 60-year-old male who had numerous arterial abnormalities, incl...

We examined the gross morphological changes in these lungs, the density and function of epithelial progenitor populations and the epithelial gene expression profile. Bronchioles became smaller in their cross-sectional area and diameter. We found that bronchiolar cell density remained stable with aging, but inferred rates of progenitor cell self-renewal and differentiation were reduced, indicative of an overall slowdown in cellular turnover. Alveolar Type II progenitor cell density and self-renewal were maintained per unit tissue area with aging, but rates of inferred differentiation into Type I cells, and indeed ove...

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) with the characteristics of “multi-component-multi-target-multi-pathway” has obvious advantages in the prevention and treatment of complex diseases, especially in the aspects of “treating the same disease with different treatments”. However, there are still some problems such as unclear substance basis and molecular mechanism of the effectiveness of formula. Network pharmacology is a new strategy based on system biology and poly-pharmacology, which could observe the intervention of drugs on disease networks at systematical and comprehensive level, and especially su...
