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]
