Effects of neuroserpin on clinical outcomes and inflammatory markers in Chinese patients with acute ischemic stroke.
CONCLUSIONS: A larger decrease in NSP levels related to lower levels of inflammatory marker, while higher NSP levels were associated with lower inflammatory markers and better functional outcomes. Decreasing the infarct size may play a role in this process. These results provide more evidence of the neuroprotective effect of NSP in cerebral ischemic patients. Decrease in the Serum NSP level and NSP level at admission may be considered as potential predictive factors for outcome of acute ischemic stroke. PMID: 28738762 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Post-stroke depression: different characteristics based on follow-up stage and gender-a cohort perspective study from Mainland China.
CONCLUSION: PSD is common in stroke survivors, and female patients have higher prevalence of PSD. Risk factors for PSD in the acute phase are different from that in the chronic phase of stroke. Female gender is an independent risk factor for PSD in the acute stage of stroke. Smoking, frontal lobe lesion, and living alone are predictive factors for PSD in the chronic stage of stroke. NIHSS score is a risk factor for PSD both in the acute and in the chronic stage of stroke. Further studies are needed to understand the mechanisms underlying the elevated prevalence of PSD in female.

Elevated CRP at admission predicts post-stroke cognitive impairment in Han Chinese patients with intracranial arterial stenosis.
CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this is the first study to explore the effects of CRP on PSCI in Han Chinese with ICAS. Our findings indicate that higher CRP levels at admission are associated with subsequent cognitive decline in Han Chinese patients with ICAS following ischemic stroke. Further studies in other ethnic groups are needed to validate the use of CRP to predict dementia in ICAS patients. PMID: 29451096 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Association of hemoglobin glycation index with outcomes of acute ischemic stroke in type 2 diabetic patients.
Conclusion Both low HGI and high HGI was associated with an increased risk of poor prognosis in diabetic patients with ischemic stroke, compared with moderate HGI. PMID: 29560815 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Effects of different frequencies of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in stroke patients with non-fluent aphasia: a randomized, sham-controlled study.
CONCLUSIONS: LF-rTMS and HF-rTMS are both beneficial to the recovery of linguistic function in patients with post-stroke non-fluent aphasia. LF-rTMS produced immediate benefits that persisted long-term, while HF-rTMS only produced long-term benefits. In addition, the benefits produced with LF-rTMS were more marked than those produced by HF-rTMS. PMID: 29589518 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Association study of CACNA1C polymorphisms with large artery atherosclerotic stroke in Chinese Han population.
Conclusion The results suggested that there was a potential association between CNCNA1C gene and the risk factor of LAA stroke in Chinese Han population. PMID: 29683785 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Association of circulating blood HMGB1 levels with ischemic stroke: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis demonstrates that circulating blood HMGB1 levels elevate in IS and higher HMGB1 levels may indicate a more serious condition. PMID: 30015578 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Predictors of mortality and recurrent stroke within five years of intracerebral hemorrhage.
Conclusion Predictors of recurrent stroke were older females, hypertension, diabetes, and brain stem hemorrhage. These findings may help to determine specific treatment strategies and improve quality of health care for such patients. PMID: 30134784 [PubMed - in process]

Lp-PLA2 as a risk factor of early neurological deterioration in acute ischemic stroke with TOAST type of large arterial atherosclerosis.
Authors: Wang Y, Hu S, Ren L, Lei Z, Lan T, Cai J, Li C Abstract INTRODUCTION: Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) is a well-known risk factor of atherosclerotic vascular diseases. Nevertheless, its role in the acute phase of ischemic stroke is still unclear. The aim of this study is to identify the relationship between Lp-PLA2 levels and early neurological deterioration (END) in acute ischemic stroke patients with Trial of Org 10 172 in Acute Stroke Treatment (TOAST) subtype of large arterial atherosclerosis (LAA). METHODS: We enrolled Chinese patients with first ever acute ischemic stroke admitt...

Increased risk of post-stroke epilepsy in Chinese patients with a TRPM6 polymorphism.
CONCLUSION: The TRPM6 rs2274924 polymorphism may be associated with susceptibility to epilepsy following stroke, and the C allele may be associated with increased risk of post-stroke epilepsy. The TRPM6 rs2274924 polymorphism may also influence serum levels of Mg2+ in post-stroke epilepsy patients. PMID: 30739590 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Association between socioeconomic status and prognosis after ischemic stroke in South China.
Conclusions: Patients with low income, family caregiver, and no insurance have a poorer prognosis after ischemic stroke that can be partly explained by intermediate variable in the patients' demographic characteristics, cardiovascular disease, behavior lifestyle, and stroke severity.

The effect of intravenous ginkgolide on clinical improvement of patients with acute ischemic stroke.
Conclusion: Intravenous ginkgolide may improve the outcome of acute ischemic stroke. Differences in effect between pre-marketing and post-marketing studies may be associated with gender, time of onset to enrollment and severity of stroke. PMID: 32048567 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Early microalbuminuria as a clinical marker for acute cerebral small vessel infarction.
CONCLUSIONS: These findings demonstrate that in patients with acute lacunar infarction, slightly increased microalbuminuria seems to be a potential clinical marker for CSVD. The presence of microalbuminuria early may help to differentiate CSVD from stroke subtypes. PMID: 30475173 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Low-dose rt-PA may not decrease the incidence of symptomatic intracranial haemorrhage in patients with high risk of symptomatic intracranial haemorrhage.
CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that low-dose intravenous rt-PA for high-risk sICH stroke in Chinese patients may not decrease the incidence of sICH, and concomitant with a poor outcome compared to standard-dose rt-PA. ABBREVIATIONS: rt-PA: recombinant tissue plasminogen activator; AIS: acute ischemic stroke; sICH: symptomatic intracranial haemorrhage. PMID: 30822264 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
