Association of Coronavirus Disease 2019 and Stroke: A Rising Concern
The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-Cov-2) causes the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). It quickly became pandemic, and so did a new concern about COVID-19 infections increasing the risk for cerebrovascular diseases. There is an association between COVID-19 illness in people and acute stroke. Several chemical, mechanical, and/or inflammatory central nervous system pathologies are proposed to explain how this viral infection might induce acute cerebrovascular disease. Timely available evaluation and/or intervention is imperative for patients with concerns about acute cerebrovascular issues.Neuroepidemiology

Integrated analysis of the proteome and transcriptome in a MCAO mouse model revealed the molecular landscape during stroke progression.
Abstract Strokes usually results in long-term disability and death, and they occur worldwide. Recently, increased research on both on the physiopathological mechanisms and the transcriptome during stroke progression, have highlighted the relationship between stroke progression and immunity, with a special focus on inflammation. Here, we applied proteome analysis to a middle carotid artery occlusion (MCAO) mouse model at 0 h, 6 h, 12 h and 24 h, in which proteome profiling was performed with 23 samples, and 41 differentially expressed proteins (DEPs) were identified. Bioinformatics studies on our data revealed ...

Walking on the Moon: A randomized clinical trial on the role of lower body positive pressure treadmill training in post-stroke gait impairment.
Abstract Body weight-supported treadmill training (BWSTT) can be usefully employed to facilitate gait recovery in patients with neurological injuries. Specifically, lower body positive pressure support system (LBPPSS) decreases weight-bearing and ground reaction forces with potentially positive effects on qualitative gait indices. However, which gait features are being shaped by LBPPSS in post-stroke patients is yet poorly predictable. A pilot study on the effects of LBPPSS on qualitative and quantitative gait indices was carried out in patients with hemiparesis due to stroke in the chronic phase. Fifty patients, ...

An Investigation of Selection Bias in Estimating Racial Disparity in Stroke Risk FactorsThe REGARDS Study
AbstractSelection due to survival or attrition might bias estimates of racial disparities in health, but few studies quantify the likely magnitude of such bias. In a large national cohort with moderate loss to follow-up, we contrasted racial differences in 2 stroke risk factors, incident hypertension and incident left ventricular hypertrophy, estimated by complete-case analyses, inverse probability of attrition weighting, and the survivor average causal effect. We used data on 12,497 black and 17,660 white participants enrolled in the United States (2003 –2007) and collected incident risk factor data approximately 10 yea...

Prospectively collected lifestyle and health information as risk factors for white matter hyperintensity volume in stroke patients
AbstractMost studies of white matter hyperintensity volume (WMHV) in stroke patients lack reliable information on antecedent exposure to vascular risk factors. By leveraging prospective cohort data, we explored associations between lifestyle and health factors assessed 1  year prior to stroke and WMHV in individuals who experienced an ischemic stroke. This analysis was nested within two large prospective studies of initially healthy individuals. Information on lifestyle factors and health conditions was collected prior to the stroke event through annual or biannual questionnaires. For individuals who experienced their fir...
