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...
Stroke
The newest study published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences investigates the role senescent cells may play in cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury and how senolytic therapy may be beneficial for those recovering from stroke. Stroke and reperfusion injury Ischemic stroke occurs when an artery in the brain is occluded, preventing an area of brain tissue...
Stroke Recovery
In a study published in Aging, Chinese researchers have described how they used computer modeling in order to create a new rapalog that is designed to reduce the long-term impact of stroke. Reperfusion injury, autophagy, and mTORC1 Stroke and other ischemic events, such as heart attack, occur when a blockage causes blood to stop flowing...
Overwork
In the largest study of its kind to date, researchers have revealed that a considerable part of all deaths from ischemic heart disease and stroke worldwide is caused by working long hours [1]. Beware of Karoshi What can we do to live longer until science can produce a suitable solution to aging? One of the...
