Cancers, Vol. 12, Pages 189: Influence of Baseline Cardiovascular Comorbidities on Mortality after Androgen Deprivation Therapy for Metastatic Prostate Cancer
ih Shao Few studies have assessed the benefits of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) in men with metastatic prostate cancer (PC; mPC) at an old age or with major cardiovascular conditions. A retrospective cohort consisted of 3835 men with newly diagnosed mPC from the Taiwan Cancer Registry of 2008–2014. Among them, 2692 patients received only ADT in the first year after the cancer diagnosis, and 1143 patients were on watchful waiting. The inverse probability of treatment-weighted Cox model was used to estimate the effects of ADT on all-cause mortality and PC-specific mortality according to age, and the...

Accelerated Risk of Premature Ischemic Stroke in 5‐Year Survivors of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma
Conclusion.Not only was the stroke risk in NPC survivors higher than that in the general population, but the onset age was also 10 years earlier. Future survivorship care should include ischemic stroke as a late complication, for its proper prevention and management.Implications for Practice.Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is endemic in Taiwan, and its 5‐year survival is 65.2%. With the increased 5‐year cancer survivors, survivorship has become an important issue. However, research on NPC survivorship is very rare. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first population‐based study on long‐term NPC survivors. This...

Association of SNPs in the TIMP-2 gene and large artery atherosclerotic stroke in southern Chinese Han population.
Authors: Guo T, Hao H, Zhou L, Zhou F, Yu D Abstract Tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase 2 (TIMP-2) regulates the extracellular matrix degradation, which involved in vascular remodeling and dysfunction, destabilization of atherosclerotic plaque and many other pathological processes. The rupture of atherosclerotic plaque is the trigger of Large artery atherosclerotic (LAA) stroke. We speculate that the Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in TIMP-2 may have an association with LAA stroke. To prove this hypothesis, we conducted this case-control study. 250 LAA stroke patients and 250 healthy controls were ...

AbstractStroke is the second most frequent neurologic finding in postmortem studies of cancer patients. It has also been described as the first expression of an occult cancer. We have studied patients diagnosed with cancer after an ischemic stroke (IS) and we analyze differences with non-tumor patients. Single cohort longitudinal retrospective study of patients admitted to our center with IS diagnosis from 1 January 2012 to 12 December 2014. All patients were followed for 18  months. Patients with transient ischemic infarction or cerebral hemorrhage, active cancer or in the last 5 years, inability to follow-up or absence...

Ischemic stroke in patients with POEMS syndrome: a case report and comprehensive analysis of literature.
Conclusion: Comprehensive analysis of literature revealed several trends in patients with ischemic stroke and POEMS syndrome including a low survival rate and a preponderance of cerebral vasculopathy and multiple cerebral arteries affected. Ischemic stroke may be a poor outcome predictor in patients with POEMS syndrome. Further researches focusing on a larger cohort may help in better characterizing and treating this rare complication of POEMS syndrome. PMID: 29179528 [PubMed]

Association analysis of APO gene polymorphisms with ischemic stroke risk: a case-control study in a Chinese Han population.
This study aimed to assess the association of APO gene polymorphisms and ischemic stroke risk in a Chinese Han population.

The Epidemiology and Clinical Associations of Stroke in Patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia: A review of 10,972 admissions from the 2012 National Inpatient Sample
Conclusions Patients with AML have an elevated risk of CVA compared to all inpatients and mortality in this population is high. Better characterization of risk factors of stroke in this vulnerable population is still needed. Teaser Acute leukemia predisposes patients toward the development of stroke. The latter, while devastating clinically, has been infrequently studied. Our study, using the 2012 National Inpatient Sample, found a 50-fold increase in the risk of stroke as compared to all inpatient admissions with a corresponding 5.5-fold increased risk of mortality. Significant risk factors for the development of stroke i...

Ischemic stroke and intracranial hemorrhage in patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme, treated with bevacizumab
AbstractBevacizumab (BVZ), a monoclonal antibody directed against vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), has been suspected to increase the incidence of ischemic stroke (IS) and intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) in GBM patients. Intracranial vascular events, such as IS and ICH, were retrospectively analyzed in 364 MRI scans of 82 patients with recurrent GBM (1st/2nd/3rd relapse). Out of these 82 patients, 40 were treated with BVZ (178 scans) in addition to basic treatment, whereas 42 patients matching for age and gender received basic treatment (186 scans). Distribution of typical vascular risk factors between both groups ...

microRNA may reduce stroke risk
(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) The molecule microRNA-210 stabilises deposits in the carotid artery and can prevent them from tearing. Thus, it may prevent dangerous blood clots from forming. This is what scientists headed by Prof. Lars M ä gdefessel, Professor of Vascular Biology at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and head of a junior scientist group in the German Centre for Cardiovascular Research (DZHK) have discovered. Their results open up new treatment approaches to reduce stroke risk in patients with carotid arteries at risk of rupturing.
