Factors associated with medication persistence among ischemic stroke patients: a systematic review.
Conclusions: Stroke patients' medication persistence decreases over time, and persistence on antiplatelets, anticoagulants, and statin was poor. Several factors were associated with medication persistence, and these factors should be considered in future secondary preventative strategies. PMID: 32321382 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Statin effects on post-stroke epilepsy and mortality - Taiwan population-based study.
Conclusion: Statins have a modest but non-significant effect in preventing post-apoplectic epilepsy in Taiwan. Statins decrease post-stroke mortality only in men. Further studies are needed to depict their exact roles in these issues. PMID: 32122287 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Inpatient statin use and stroke recurrence in patients with or without diabetes mellitus.
Conclusion: Inpatient statin use was associated with lower stroke recurrence in non-diabetic patients after acute ischaemic stroke, but no definite association between inpatient statin use and stroke recurrence in patients with diabetes mellitus was found.

Statin treatment before stroke reduces pro-inflammatory cytokine levels after stroke.
CONCLUSION: Stroke induces changes in the RhoA-ROCK pathway in T-cells. CRP and NIHSS score correlated positively in the study. Statins may have an anti-inflammatory effect as statin treatment before stroke reduces post-stroke pro-inflammatory levels. RhoA GTPase and its downstream effectors are possibly the key to improve statin treatment in stroke. PMID: 30574850 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Persistence of secondary prevention medication and related factors for acute ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack in China.
CONCLUSIONS: More than half of patients with AIS and TIA reported discontinuing one or more secondary prevention medications within 3 months of hospital discharge. Several factors associated with medication persistence were identified. Here, we propose strategies that could be implemented to improve the quality of secondary prevention.
