The effects of raised brain lactate levels on neuronal survival following hypoxia or ischemia is still a source of controversy among basic and clinical scientists. We have sought to address this controversy by studying the effects of glucose and lactate on neuronal survival in acute and cultured hippocampal slices. Following a 1-h hypoxic episode, neuronal… (More)
The risk of thrombolysis in patients taking novel anticoagulants remains unclear. We describe a patient with a large acute ischaemic stroke, who had a low calibrated anti-factor Xa level, who safely received thrombolysis 15-17 hours after standard dose rivaroxaban without subsequent intracerebral haemorrhage.
