microRNAs Alterations of Myocardium and Brain Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury: Insight to Improve Infarction.

microRNAs Alterations of Myocardium and Brain Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury: Insight to Improve Infarction. Immunol Invest. 2020 Oct 07;:1-22 Authors: Sabet Sarvestani F, Azarpira N Abstract Heart and cerebral infarctions, as two important ischemic diseases, lead to the death of tissues due to inadequate blood supply and high mortality worldwide. These statuses are started via blockage of vessels and depletion of oxygen and nutrients which affected these areas. After reperfusion and restoration of oxygen supply, more severe injury was mediated by multifaceted cascades of inflammation and oxidative stress. microRNAs (miRNAs) as the regulator of biological and pathological pathways can adjust these conditions by interaction with their targets. Also, miRNAs can be modulated by preconditioning and external agents that may improve the functional outcome after IRI. miRNAs might be considered as therapeutic approaches to improve the symptoms of patients after myocardial infarction and cerebral ischemic stroke.

AbstractCoronary artery bypass grafting improves survival in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy, however, these patients are at high risk for morbidity and mortality. The role of viability testing to guide revascularization in these patients is unclear. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) has not been studied adequately in this population despite being considered a reference standard for infarct imaging. We performed a multicenter retrospective analysis of patients (n  = 154) with severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction [ejection fraction (EF)   50% viability on CMR had a 47% reduct...

AbstractHypoxia, the major cause of ischemic injury, leads to debilitating disease in infants via birth asphyxia and cerebral palsy, whereas in adults via heart attack and stroke. A widespread, natural protective phenomenon termed ‘hypoxic preconditioning’ (PH) occurs when prior exposures to hypoxia eventually result in robust hypoxia resistance. Accordingly, we have developed and optimized a novel model of hypoxic preconditioning in adult zebrafish to mimic the tolerance of mini stroke(s) in human, which appears to prote ct against the severe damage inflicted by a major stroke event. Here, we observed a remark...

Abstract Background: Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) treat an expanding range of cancers. Consistent basic data suggest that these same checkpoints are critical negative regulators of atherosclerosis. Therefore, our objectives were to test whether ICIs were associated with accelerated atherosclerosis and a higher risk of atherosclerosis-related cardiovascular events. Methods: The study was situated in a single academic medical center. The primary analysis evaluated whether exposure to an ICI was associated with atherosclerotic cardiovascular events in 2842 patients and 2842 controls, matched by age, a history o...

Systemic air embolism developed after CT ‐guided TTNB, leading to ST‐elevation, myocardial infarction and acute ischemic stroke. The patient recovered completely without sequelae and was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma harboring activatingEGFR mutation. Treatment with gefitinib showed a response. Air embolism is a rare, fatal complication of computed tomography (CT) ‐guided transthoracic needle biopsy (TTNB) of the lung. Here, we report a patient who developed an air embolism after CT‐guided TTNB, which led to ST‐elevation myocardial infarction and acute cerebral ischemia. The patient recovered completely without c...

In conclusion, it remains unclear if brain-specific regional and temporal changes occur in the expression of the different APP variants during AD progression. Since APP is also found in blood cells, assessing the changes in APP mRNA expression in peripheral blood cells from AD patients has been considering an alternative. However, again the quantification of APP mRNA in peripheral blood cells has generated controversial results. Brain APP protein has been analyzed in only a few studies, probably as it is difficult to interpret the complex pattern of APP variants and fragments. We previously characterized the soluabl...

CONCLUSION: The study may present the possibility that organ temperature-induced alterations in gene expression are organ specific in homeotherms and the possibility that organ temperature-induced alterations in gene expression are transcriptionally regulated in some organs of homeotherms.

ConclusionsThe H-REPLACE trial offers an opportunity to assess clinical outcomes of rivaroxaban versus enoxaparin during the acute phase of ACS and may provide an alternative anticoagulation strategy for ACS patients, who missed the primary reperfusion therapy window and before selective revascularization.Trial RegistrationClinicalTrials.gov; NCT03363035.

ConclusionSouth Korea had a relatively high incidence of NFPA. The incidence of stroke was highest for ACTH  + TSH and NFPA, which was directly related to mortality during long-term follow-up. Patients with these types of PA should receive stroke prevention measures to reduce their risk of mortality.

CONCLUSIONS: In our study of mild to moderate ischemic stroke patients, high activity levels of FXI and FVIII but not FXII were associated with worse vascular outcomes in the three-year period after first ischemic stroke. PMID: 32935900 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
