Assessment of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) toxicity in cultured neural cells and subsequent treatment with poly-arginine peptide R18D.
Abstract Thrombolytic therapy with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) in ischaemic stroke has been associated with neurotoxicity, blood brain barrier (BBB) disruption and intra-cerebral hemorrhage. To examine rtPA cellular toxicity we investigated the effects of rtPA on cell viability in neuronal, astrocyte and brain endothelial cell (bEnd.3) cultures with and without prior exposure to oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD). In addition, the neuroprotective peptide poly-arginine-18 (R18D; 18-mer of D-arginine) was examined for its ability to reduce rtPA toxicity. Studies demonstrated that a 4- or 24-h expos...

Novel antithrombotic effects of dabigatran in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation
Ischemic heart disease and stroke are major causes of death and morbidity worldwide. Coronary and cerebrovascular events are a consequence of thrombus formation caused by atherosclerotic plaque rupture or embolism, both of which result from platelet activation and aggregation and thrombin-mediated fibrin generation via the coagulation cascade [1]. In addition, thrombin is also one of the most effective platelet activators [2]. We focused on a novel thrombus formation mechanism called thrombin-mediated platelet stimulation and established thrombin-induced platelet aggregation [3].

Commentary: Subclinical valve thrombosis —Are all transcatheter aortic valves created equal?
Transcatheter aortic valve insertion (TAVI) technology presents new opportunities but also new challenges, including subclinical valve thrombosis (SCVT). In this edition of the Journal, Woldendorp and colleagues1 report a meta-analysis investigating SCVT after TAVI focusing on prevalence, predisposing factors, management, and consequences. Twelve studies that screened for SCVT using multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) were included comparing stroke risk between patients with SCVT and those without, as well as the effects of antiplatelet therapy and oral anticoagulation (OAC) on preventing SCVT.

Mechanical Thrombectomy for Posterior Circulation Occlusion: A Comparison of Outcomes with the Anterior Circulation Occlusion - A Meta-Analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: We found that the outcomes of MT for patients with PCO were poorer than with ACO. On the other hand, MT appears to have lower rates of sICH and to increase successful recanalization. Given the high recanalization rate, MT may serve as an adjunct to standard treatment. The key point to improve outcomes is recognizing reliable factors associated with futile recanalization and optimizing the results of MT. But in view of the different characteristics of posterior circulation stroke and anterior circulation stroke, the results are far from robust. PMID: 32062629 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Impact of thrombus migration on clinical outcomes in patients with internal carotid artery occlusions and patent middle cerebral artery
Patency of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) in acute ischemic stroke with internal carotid artery (ICA) occlusions is associated with less severe stroke and favorable outcomes. However, thrombus migration to distal intracranial vessels may lead to unfavorable outcomes. We investigated the influence of thrombus migration on clinical outcomes in patients with ICA occlusions and patent MCA.

Atrial myxoma with cerebellar signs: a case report
ConclusionAlthough rare, atrial myxoma has to be considered a cause of stroke and other embolic phenomenon causing multiorgan infarctions. Early and timely diagnosis of the condition can prevent further recurrence and inappropriate anticoagulant therapy. It would be pertinent to have echocardiography done in patients who present with a stroke, arrhythmias, and other constitutional symptoms. The tumor once detected must be removed surgically as early as possible, which not only reduces serious thromboembolic complications but can be potentially curative.

A Pictorial Review of Intracranial Haemorrhage Revisited.
CONCLUSION: Unenhanced CT is a mainstay of acute phase imaging due to its availability and, sensitivity and specificity for detecting acute haemorrhage. Several imaging features can be identified on CT and, along with clinical information, can provide some certainty in diagnosis. For those suitable and where diagnostic uncertainty remains CT angiogram, time-resolved CT angiography and catheter angiography can help identify underlying AVMs, aneurysms, cavernomas and vasculitides. MRI is more sensitive for the detection of subacute and chronic haemorrhage and identification of underlying mass lesions. PMID: 32008532 [PubMed - in process]

Challenges in Drug Development Targeting Anti-atherosclerotic Proteins.
Abstract Atherosclerosis is a vascular disease responsible for acute heart attacks and stroke, which are leading causes of death not only in industrialized countries but also worldwide, and the number of patients afflicted by this disease has been increasing in Japan. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is the plasma lipoprotein that carries what is often called your "good cholesterol" through the blood. This good cholesterol moniker is associated with HDL because higher circulating levels of this lipoprotein are associated with a well-known reduction in the risk of arteriosclerosis. Moreover, many protective mechanism...
