Ischemic stroke continues to be a major global health problem associated with considerable mortality and morbidity. Thus, it is still targeted by researchers for developing new strategies or drugs to ...

Stroke injury induced by distal middle cerebral artery occlusion is resistant to N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antagonism in FVB/NJ mice.

Jul 22, 2021

Although N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) antagonism has been shown to have a neuroprotective effect in many preclinical stroke models, the efficacy of this antiexcitotoxicity strategy in clinica...

10-O-(N N-Dimethylaminoethyl)-Ginkgolide B Methane-Sulfonate (XQ-1H) Ameliorates Cerebral Ischemia Via Suppressing Neuronal Apoptosis.

Jul 19, 2021

The 10-O-(N N-dimethylaminoethyl)-ginkgolide B methane-sulfonate (XQ-1H) is an effective novel drug for the treatment of ischemic cerebrovascular disease derived from Ginkgolide B, a traditional Chine...

LncRNA MEG3 inhibits the proliferation of neural stem cells after ischemic stroke via the miR-493-5P/MIF axis.

Jul 19, 2021

The proliferation of neural stem cells (NSCs), or lack thereof, can have profound effects on brain tissue remodeling for ischemic stroke (IS). In this study, we aimed to reveal the influence of the ln...

Deep vein thrombosis following arthroscopic meniscal root repair: A case report.

Jul 15, 2021

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) following arthroscopic surgery is a rare condition, especially arthroscopic meniscal surgery. There have been three reported cases of DVT after arthroscopic meniscal procedu...

Pseudoginsenoside-F11 promotes functional recovery after transient cerebral ischemia by regulating the microglia/macrophage polarization in rats.

Jul 12, 2021

The polarization of microglia/macrophages after cerebral ischemia is critical for post-stroke damage/recovery. Previously, we found that pseudoginsenoside-F11 (PF11), an ocotillol-type saponin, has ne...

Effects of peer support interventions on physical and psychosocial outcomes among stroke survivors: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Jul 12, 2021
