Technology and treatment in the field of stroke care: Dayton experts weigh in
When treating life-threatening medical conditions like stroke, time is of the essence. Rapid advances in technology could help. Stroke, the fifth-leading cause of death and one of the leading causes of disability in the U.S., occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is interrupted, due to either a clot (ischemic) or a broken blood vessel (hemorrhagic). Symptoms are sudden-onset, and the longer blood flow is interrupt ed, the greater the damage. That's why every minute counts.

Endothelium-targeted deletion of the miR-15a/16-1 cluster ameliorates blood-brain barrier dysfunction in ischemic stroke
The blood-brain barrier (BBB) maintains a stable brain microenvironment. Breakdown of BBB integrity during cerebral ischemia initiates a devastating cascade of events that eventually leads to neuronal loss. MicroRNAs are small noncoding RNAs that suppress protein expression, and we previously showed that the miR-15a/16-1 cluster is involved in the pathogenesis of ischemic brain injury. Here, we demonstrated that when subjected to experimentally induced stroke, mice with an endothelial cell (EC)–selective deletion of miR-15a/16-1 had smaller brain infarcts, reduced BBB leakage, and decreased infiltration of peripheral...

Antioxidant treatment in acute ischemic stroke may delay the onset of Alzheimer's dementia
(Bentham Science Publishers) There is a considerable overlap between vascular risk factors and risk factors of Alzheimer's disease (AD). In addition, incident stroke approximately doubles the risk of developing AD. Oxidative stress is significantly involved in the pathogenesis of AD and suffers a dramatic increase in the setting of acute ischemic stroke, especially in cardioembolic stroke, followed by lacunar stroke. Dampening this oxidative burst could delay the onset of subsequent dementia in stroke survivors. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Cerebrospinal fluid influx drives acute ischemic tissue swelling
Stroke affects millions each year. Poststroke brain edema predicts the severity of eventual stroke damage, yet our concept of how edema develops is incomplete and treatment options remain limited. In early stages, fluid accumulation occurs owing to a net gain of ions, widely thought to enter from the vascular compartment. Here, we used magnetic resonance imaging, radiolabeled tracers, and multiphoton imaging in rodents to show instead that cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain enters the tissue within minutes of an ischemic insult along perivascular flow channels. This process was initiated by ischemic spreading depola...
