OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of neurological and medical complications on 3-month outcomes in acute ischaemic stroke patients. METHODS We prospectively investigated complications for all the consecutive acute ischaemic stroke patients admitted within 7 days from onset in four university hospitals during a 1-year period. Baseline data and 3-month(More)
Free radical-induced oxidative damages of macromolecules and cell death are important factors in the pathogenesis of ischemia/reperfusion brain injury. In the present study, an investigation as to whether green tea extract reduces ischemia/reperfusion-induced brain injury in Mongolian gerbils was conducted. The effect of green tea on the(More)
The antigenotoxic and chemopreventive effect of Aloe barbadensis Miller (polysaccharide fraction) on benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P)-DNA adducts was investigated in vitro and in vivo. Aloe showed a time-course and dose-dependent inhibition of [3H]B[a]P-DNA adduct formation in primary rat hepatocytes (1x10(6) cells/ml) treated with [3H]B[a]P (4 nmol/ml). At(More)
Eicosanoids accumulation and formation of oxygen free radicals have been implicated in the pathogenesis of ischemia/reperfusion brain injury. In the present study, we examined whether green tea extract protects against ischemia/reperfusion-induced brain injury by minimizing eicosanoid accumulation and oxygen radical-induced oxidative damage in the brain.(More)
To understand the characteristics of posterior circulation ischemic stroke (PCS) in the Korean population better, we retrospectively reviewed the data from the Hallym Stroke Registry (HSR). We analyzed the demographic features, risk factors, stroke subtypes, lesion distributions and clinical outcomes of 591 consecutive patients with PCS, enrolled in HSR(More)
Striatocapsular infarction is known to have various neurologic manifestations including cortical symptoms. However, striatocapsular infarction patients without cortical dysfunctions can be easily found. Therefore, we tried to evaluate the properties and pathogenesis of two distinct expressions of striatocapsular infarction, striatocapsular infarction with(More)
The effect of ischemia/reperfusion-induced neuronal damage on the memory impairment were investigated using active avoidance and Morris water maze tasks in Wistar rats. Focal ischemia was induced by 1 h occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery (MCA) of Wistar male rats. Reperfusion was induced by releasing the occlusion and restoring the blood(More)
BACKGROUND It has not been clarified whether the disparity in ischemic stroke outcome between populations is caused by ethnic and geographic differences or by variations in case mix. Propensity score matching (PSM) analysis can overcome some analytical problems but is rarely used in stroke outcome research. This study was to compare the ischemic stroke(More)
In utero exposure of the embryo and fetus to radiation has been implicated in malformations or fetal death, and often produces lifelong health consequences such as cancers and mental retardation. Here we demonstrate that deletion of a G-protein-coupled purinergic receptor, P2Y14, confers potent resistance to in utero radiation. Intriguingly, a putative(More)
