Rat looking at camera
Japanese researchers publishing in Aging have described how improving the AMPK metabolic pathway improves outcomes in a rat model of stroke. Targeting metabolism directly This paper begins with a look back at previous research on the focus of this study, 5β€²-adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK). This signaling molecule is described here as 'evolutionarily conserved', meaning...
Elderly sleep
Showing yet again that sleep is a serious matter, scientists have reported that short sleep duration, snoring, and long naps are linked to a significantly elevated risk of acute stroke [1]. Debilitating and deadly Stroke, an acute condition in which the blood supply to a part of the brain is interrupted, is one of the...
Ischemic stroke
Researchers publishing in Aging have found that there is a correlation between the APOE4 gene and poor outcomes after ischemic stroke. An allele with a long and sordid history The Relationship Between ApoE and Alzheimer'sAlzheimer's disease is the most typical form of dementia. It is a progressive disease that begins with mild memory loss, leads...
Stroke
Publishing in Aging, a team of Chinese researchers has provided evidence showing a relationship between systemic inflammation and prognosis after a stroke. Stroke is a deadly and common affliction As the researchers point out, strokes are the leading cause of death in China, with strokes caused by a loss of blood supply (ischemic strokes) being...
Back from the dead
Researchers have been able to achieve substantial recovery of cellular and organismal activity in pigs that had been dead for a full hour [1]. When is it too late? Advances in resuscitation have already moved the boundaries of life and death, making it possible to revive a person several minutes after the heart stops beating....
Blood Vessels Eye
Researchers publishing in GeroScience have found that carotid artery stenosis, a consequence of hypertension, is linked to a lack of blood flow in the eyes. A disease that restricts blood flow to the brain Carotid artery stenosis (CAS) is a dangerous condition that is strongly associated with stroke [1]. It occurs when plaque build-up occludes...
