Deathly Ill Coronavirus Patients Could Be Saved By Heart Attack And Stroke Drug
BOSTON (CBS) — TPA is a drug that is used to help stroke and heart attack victims. It works by breaking up or busting blood clots. Doctors at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center are now using it in a clinical trial on gravely ill coronavirus patients. “There’s a lot of very small blood clots accumulating in the lungs of these patients,” said Dr. Christopher Barrett. “And that seems to be at least contributory, if not the predominant reason, that their respiratory failure is so bad.” Dr. Barrett says TPA could help patients recover faster, free up ventilators and even prevent people from...

An Association Between Herpes Zoster Vaccination and Stroke Reduction Among Elderly Individuals.
Authors: Klaric JS, Beltran TA, McClenathan BM Abstract Herpes zoster (HZ, shingles) affects individuals (60+ years) by reactivation of varicella virus from primary infection. Approximately one-third of the general population will develop HZ and are at increased risk of stroke. Our objective was describing possible associations between self-reported HZ vaccination and stroke with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Behavioral Risk Factors Surveillance System, a cross-sectional nationwide telephone survey. Non-institutionalized U.S. adults answered items concerning health risk behaviors. 2014 survey dat...

Beneficial Effects of Vaccination on Cardiovascular Events: Myocardial Infarction, Stroke, Heart Failure
Influenza and pneumococcal infections have been suggested to be potential risk factors for causing adverse cardiovascular events, especially in high-risk patients. Vaccination against respiratory infections in patients with established cardiovascular disease (CVD) could serve as a potential cost-effective intervention to improve their clinical outcomes and cardiac societies have encouraged it. Previous studies have shown that influenza vaccination reduce mortality, acute coronary syndromes and hospitalization in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) and/or heart failure (HF). However, there is a paucity of randomized ...

Laboratory-confirmed respiratory infections as triggers for acute myocardial infarction and stroke: a self-controlled case series analysis of national linked datasets from Scotland
While acute respiratory tract infections can trigger cardiovascular events, the differential effect of specific organisms is unknown. This is important to guide vaccine policy. Using national infection surveillance data linked to the Scottish Morbidity Record, we identified adults with a first myocardial infarction or stroke from January 1, 2004 to December 31, 2014 and a record of laboratory-confirmed respiratory infection during this period. Using self-controlled case series analysis, we generated age- and season-adjusted incidence ratios (IRs) for myocardial infarction (n=1227) or stroke (n=762) after infections compare...

Effect of Influenza Vaccination on Risk of Stroke: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Background: Despite the presence of a strong association between influenza infection and stroke, whether influenza vaccination reduces the risk of stroke is yet a matter of controversy. We conducted a meta-analysis to determine whether influenza vaccination protects against stroke.Methods: We searched PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library from database inception date to November 18, 2016, without language restrictions, to identify studies investigating the effect of influenza vaccination on subsequent risk of stroke. We conducted a meta-analysis to quantify the risk of stroke in overall and subgroup analyses and calcula...

Stroke rates appear to be rising steadily in young adults
The rate of stroke among young people has apparently been rising steadily since 1995, according to a study published this week. Hospitalization rates for stroke increased for women between the ages of 18 and 44, and nearly doubled for men in that age range from 1995 through 2012. Using more-detailed data for 2003 through 2012, the researchers found that rates […]Related:California vaccination rate hits new high after tougher immunization lawRisk of a rare but deadly mouse-borne virus increases in the springThe federal panel that opposed prostate cancer screening just changed its mind

Biological Plausibility of a Link Between Arterial Ischemic Stroke and Infection with Varicella-Zoster Virus or Herpes Simplex Virus.
Abstract There are now 9 human herpesviruses; the increase from 8 to 9 was caused by a recent decision to split human herpesvirus (HHV) strains 6A and 6B into distinct species. The 9 species are subdivided into three subfamilies, called alpha: herpes simplex virus (HSV) types 1 and 2 and varicella-zoster virus (VZV); beta: cytomegalovirus (CMV), HHV6A, HHV6B and HHV7; gamma: Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (sometimes called HHV8). These same herpesviruses have evolved with humankind around the world since the great migration of modern humans across the Mandeb Strait out of Afri...

Infection and Stroke: an Update on Recent Progress
Abstract The role of infection in cerebrovascular disease is complex and remains incompletely understood. Over the last 5 years, investigators have made notable inroads in untangling this thorny topic. In this review, we examine these recent developments, concentrating on four aspects of the relationship between infection and stroke. We first discuss specific infectious agents as direct causes of stroke, focusing on recent work implicating herpesviruses and HIV in cerebral vasculopathy. We then discuss systemic infection of any type as a stroke trigger, focusing on the relationship of infection to timing of acut...

Infection, vaccination, and childhood arterial ischemic stroke
A stroke occurs when a blood vessel to the brain is either blocked or ruptured. When blood to part of the brain is blocked, it causes what is called an ischemic stroke. Stroke is much more common in adults and the elderly. This is because fats and cholesterol can build up and block blood vessels as we age. Stroke is much less common in children. Stroke occurs in 11 per 100,000 children under the age of 18 every year.1 Still, it is one of the top 10 causes of death for children.2 We don't routinely expect children to have the major risk factors for atherosclerosis, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, an...

A call for new attitudes on infection, vaccination, and childhood stroke
Population-based estimates of the incidence of childhood stroke range from 2.6 to 13 cases per 100,000 children per year. Unlike in adults, conventional stroke risk factors such as arterial hypertension, diabetes, and cigarette smoking make little contribution to the etiology of stroke in children. Developmental, genetic, and environmental factors are major contributors to ischemic stroke in children.
