Depression Doubles Risk Of Stroke In Middle-Aged Women
Depression doubles the risk of having a stroke in middle-aged women, according to a new study in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association. The research, a 12-year examination of 10,547 Australian females between the ages of 47 and 52 years old, showed that depressed women had a 2.4 times higher likelihood of stroke than those who were not suffering from depression. After adjusting for factors known to increase stroke risks, results showed that depressed women were still 1.9 times more likely to experience a stroke. Study author Caroline Jackson, Ph.D...

Missing Link Discovered In Signals Contributing To Neurodegeneration
In many neurodegenerative diseases the neurons of the brain are over-stimulated and this leads to their destruction. After many failed attempts and much scepticism this process was finally shown last year to be a possible basis for treatment in some patients with stroke. But very few targets for drugs to block this process are known. In a new highly detailed study, researchers have discovered a previously missing link between over-stimulation and destruction of brain tissue, and shown that this might be a target for future drugs. This research, led by the A. I...

New Astrocytes Play Unexpected Role In Healing After Brain Injury
The production of a certain kind of brain cell that had been considered an impediment to healing may actually be needed to staunch bleeding and promote repair after a stroke or head trauma, researchers at Duke Medicine report. These cells, known as astrocytes, can be produced from stem cells in the brain after injury. They migrate to the site of damage where they are much more effective in promoting recovery than previously thought. This insight from studies in mice, reported online in the journal Nature, may help researchers develop treatments that foster brain repair...

Ischemic Strokes Can Lead To Chronic Pain
Chronic or persistent pain is a common - and likely under-recognized - complication of ischemic strokes (caused by a blocked blood vessel) according to new research in the American Heart Association journal Stroke. In a large trial of treatments to prevent a second stroke, researchers found that 10.6 percent of more than 15,000 stroke survivors developed chronic pain. "Chronic pain syndromes are common, even following strokes of mild to moderate severity," said Martin J. O'Donnell, M.D...

Less Salt and More Potassium Reduce Risk Of Stroke
Less salt and more potassium in a person's diet can lower blood pressure and the risk of stroke. Making these simple changes can save millions of lives each year, according to new studies published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). Scientists have known that reducing the amount of salt people eat can lower their blood pressure, which ultimately reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke. A previous study in the same journal showed that high salt intake is linked to a significantly increased risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease...

Early Identification Of Cognitive Decline Via Brain-Imaging And Stroke Risk Test
UCLA researchers have used a brain-imaging tool and stroke risk assessment to identify signs of cognitive decline early on in individuals who don't yet show symptoms of dementia. The connection between stroke risk and cognitive decline has been well established by previous research. Individuals with higher stroke risk, as measured by factors like high blood pressure, have traditionally performed worse on tests of memory, attention and abstract reasoning...

High Fiber Diet Protects You From Stroke
If you eat more fiber you will probably have a lower risk of first time stroke, researchers from the University of Leeds' School of Food Science & Nutrition in Leeds, United Kingdom, reported in the journal Stroke. Dietary fiber comes from plants, the part that our body does not absorb when digesting food. Fiber can be insoluble or soluble (dissolves in water). No fiber can be digested. However, soluble fiber as it goes through the digestive tract, changes its form when it is fermented by bacteria. Soluble fiber absorbs water and becomes gelatinous as it does so...

Devices No Better Than Meds In Recovery From Clot-Caused Strokes
When someone has a stroke, time equals brain. The longer a stroke is left untreated, the more brain tissue is lost. Since the only proven treatment - a clot-busting drug - works in less than half of patients, stroke physicians had high hopes for a mechanical device that could travel through the blocked blood vessel to retrieve or break up the clot, restoring blood flow to the brain...

Women With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Seem To Have Higher Risk Of Heart Attack And Stroke
A syndrome common in women of reproductive age may place them at greater risk for hardening of the arteries, which predisposes them to heart attack and stroke, according to research published Feb. 15 in the American Journal of Physiology, Endocrinology and Metabolism. Glucose can stimulate an inflammatory process that allows white blood cells to enter the artery walls and attract cholesterol. Researchers studied 18- to 40-year-old women, lean and obese, with polycystic ovary syndrome and weight-matched controls...
