Tenecteplase use in the management of acute ischemic stroke: Literature review and clinical considerations
CONCLUSION: Current clinical evidence shows that tenecteplase is not inferior to alteplase for the treatment of ischemic stroke and suggests that tenecteplase may have a superior safety profile. Furthermore, tenecteplase also has practical advantages in terms of its administration. This can potentially lead to a decrease in medication errors and improvement in door to thrombolytic time.PMID:35020806 | DOI:10.1093/ajhp/zxac010

Development of strategies to support home-based exercise adherence after stroke: a Delphi consensus

Associations of Serum Testosterone and Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin With Incident Cardiovascular Events in Middle-Aged to Older Men
CONCLUSION: Men with lower total testosterone concentrations were not at increased risk for MI, stroke, HF, or MACE. Calculated free testosterone may be associated with risk for MACE. Men with lower SHBG concentrations have higher risk for MI but lower risk for IS and HF, with causality to be determined.PRIMARY FUNDING SOURCE: Western Australian Health Translation Network, Medical Research Future Fund, and Lawley Pharmaceuticals.PMID:34958606 | DOI:10.7326/M21-0551
