Malnutrition during hospitalization affects the functional recovery and postdischarge destinations of elderly stroke patients. However, insufficient studies exist about nutritional status during hospitalization in the acute stroke phase in this population. This study determined factors of nutritional status changes during hospitalization in elderly patients in the acute phase of stroke, and investigated the relationship between nutritional status changes and improved activities of daily living and postdischarge destination.… Read More...

Objective: To study the inflammatory mechanism of hyperhomocysteinemia on large-artery atherosclerosis based on hypersensitive C-reactive protein in patients. Methods: In all, 153 inpatients and 1357 physical examinees were selected. The levels of homocysteine were compared between the carotid/intracranial artery stenosis group and the nonstenosis group, between the carotid artery unstable plaque group and the nonplaque group, and between the intima-media thickness (IMT) greater than or equal to 1 group and the normal IMT group.… Read More...

Goal: The present study aimed to examine whether Am80 (tamibarotene) protects the hippocampus against cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury and whether phosphoinositide-3-kinase/Akt (PI3K/Akt) pathway mediates this effect. Materials and methods: Rats were subjected to 90 minutes of middle cerebral artery occlusion followed by 24 hours of reperfusion.… Read More...

Objective: To assess the reproducibility of 3.0T high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging for the identification and quantification of atherosclerotic plaques in the middle cerebral artery. Methods: Sixty-nine consecutive patients with ischemic stroke or asymptomatic stenosis (30%) of the middle cerebral artery underwent 3.0T high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging examinations.… Read More...

Purpose: The aim was to investigate the relationship between sleep duration and stroke according to nonhealth status among adults in Central China. Methods: A total of 18,670 participants were selected by stratified multistage random sampling method in Henan province during 2013-2015.… Read More...

Background and Aims: The Neutrophil-to-Lymphocyte Ratio (NLR) is suggested as a readily available and inexpensive biomarker to predict prognosis of acute stroke. Experience with intravenous (IV) tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) treatment is limited. Methods: Total 142 (80 female, age: 69 ± 13 yearr) consecutive acute stroke patients treated with IV tPA were evaluated.… Read More...

Background and purpose: Previous studies have shown that common variants within CYP3A4 and CYP3A5 are associated with statin pharmacokinetics and the risk of cardiovascular disease. However, the association of variants in CYP3A4 and CYP3A5 with the prognosis of ischemic stroke remains undetermined.… Read More...
