ConclusionsThe frequency of NAFLD was high in our patient group. Significant NAFLD-presence factors were high BMI, low AST/ALT ratio, high serum albumin level, high PA%, and high DGLA level. A further study is warranted to determine the effects of the NAFLD-presence factors on stroke onset or prevention.

In conclusion, our cohort of pure thalamic infarcts were mainly due to SVO (TOAST), with hypertension as the main risk factor, and the inferolateral artery as the most implicated arterial territory. Less severe outcome or stroke recurrence are identified in long-term follow-up of pure thalamic infarcts. Other comorbidities would be cause of death in aged patients.

AbstractThe association between bone mineral density (BMD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) is not fully understood. We evaluated BMD as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and specifically atrial fibrillation (AF), acute myocardial infarction (AMI), ischemic (IS) and hemorrhagic stroke (HS) and heart failure (HF) in men and women. This prospective population cohort utilized data on 22 857 adults from the second and third surveys of the HUNT Study in Norway free from CVD at baseline. BMD was measured using single and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry in the non-dominant distal forearm and T-score was calculated. Hazard...

In this study, mature DCs (mDCs), generated from the GM-CSF and IL-4 induced bone marrow cells, were intravenously injected into wild-type mice. Three days later, assays showed that the mDCs were indeed able to return to the thymus. Homing DCs have been mainly reported to deplete thymocytes and induce tolerance. However, medullary TECs (mTECs) play a crucial role in inducing immune tolerance. Thus, we evaluated whether the mDCs homing into the thymus led to TECs depletion. We cocultured mDCs with mTEC1 cells and found that the mDCs induced the apoptosis and inhibited the proliferation of mTEC1 cells. These effects were onl...

Conclusion: The older adults and the oldest old had significantly high disparities in stroke knowledge. Given the aging population across China, the life expectancy is expected to be longer in future decades. These differences should be addressed in stroke educational campaigns targeting the oldest old.

Atherosclerosis, the buildup of fatty plaques in blood vessel walls, is an inevitable outcome of aging, driven by chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, and other processes that cannot be evaded without the development of new approaches to medical biotechnology. The pace at which this becomes a fatal condition is heavily driven by lifestyle choices, however. All of the usual activities and decisions that physicians tell us to avoid will, over time, lead to a faster progression of atherosclerosis, and a greater risk of mortality due to the rupture or blockage of blood vessels. It is quite possible that many people will be ...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTObjective Limited data exist regarding the comparative detailed clinical characteristics of patients with ischemic stroke (IS)/transient ischemic attack (TIA) and intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) receiving oral anticoagulants (OACs). Methods The prospective analysis of stroke patients taking oral anticoagulants (PASTA) registry, a multicenter registry of 1,043 stroke patients receiving OACs (vitamin K antagonists [VKAs] or non-vitamin K oral antagonists [NOACs]) across 25 medical institutions throughout Japan, was used. Univariate an...
