Current treatments for ischemic stroke are limited, stem cell transplantation offers great potential as a therapeutic strategy. The present study was undertaken to determine whether human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSCs) could improve brain injury after middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) through modulating peripheral(More)
Ischemic stroke is particularly susceptible to free radicals mediated secondary neuronal damage, especially mitochondrial dysfunction. Malibatol A (MA), a novel resveratrol oligomer, has shown potential antioxidant property in vitro. But little is known about its effect on central nervous system (CNS) in vivo. In the present study, the effect of MA was(More)
beta-Amyloid peptide (Abeta) is one of the main protein components of senile plaques contributing to Alzheimer's disease and it can induce neuronal apoptosis. In this study, it was found that icariin, a flavonoid extracted from Chinese Herba-Epimedii, inhibited Abeta42-induced neurotoxicity in a dose-dependent manner. The peak dose of icariin was 160(More)
Left atrial myxoma is a rare cause of cardioembolic stroke in adults and when stroke occurs, it is mainly due to arterial embolism in cerebral vessels. Cerebral infarction is the first clinical manifestation in one-third of cases. We report a 24-year-old female patient with left atrial myxoma, and no other conventional vascular risk factors such as(More)
The mechanisms of ischemic stroke, a main cause of disability and death, are complicated. Ischemic stroke results from the interaction of various factors including oxidative stress, a key pathological mechanism that plays an important role during the acute stage of ischemic brain injury. This study demonstrated that cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated(More)
Stroke, of which about 87% is ischemic stroke, constitutes one of the main causes of morbidity, disability, and mortality worldwide. Ischemic brain injury has complex pathological mechanisms. Considerable evidence has been collected over the last few years suggesting that oxidative stress associated with excessive production of reactive oxygen species is a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the epidemiology characteristics of crawfish related rhabdomyolysis (RM) in Nanjing, 2016. METHODS Outpatient and inpatient electronic medical system of 21 hospitals in Nanjing during 2016 were retrospectively searched, and all the patients diagnosed with RM were selected. The patients with none crayfish-related RM was excluded.(More)
