It has been well documented that oxidative stress is involved in stroke. Currently, many neuroprotective strategies have been targeted at molecules that are able to act as an oxidant to intervene with free-radical mediated apoptosis in the ischemic penumbra. In particular, natural products which contain antioxidant properties have undoubtedly efficacious(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment with sorafenib, although associated with inhibition of tumour growth and angiogenesis in in vivo studies, leads to up-regulation of pERK. The addition of MEK inhibition could potentially abrogate this effect and potentiate anti-tumour activity. This phase I study investigated the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), safety, tolerability,(More)
V entricular arrhythmias, pulseless electrical activity, and asystole can occur at the early stages of an acute coronary thrombotic occlusion, causing hemodynamic collapse, and resulting in “sudden cardiac death.” Recognizing this common pathway for adult cardiac arrest, the 2012 European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the 2013 American College of(More)
Real progress has been made in improving long-term outcome after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the past 10 years. Many communities have doubled their survival-to-hospital-discharge rate during this period. Common features of such successful programs include the following: (1) 911 dispatcher-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) instruction, (2)(More)
Introduction Cardiovascular disease is a significant cause of morbidity and the leading cause of mortality in both the United States and worldwide.1,2 Given the considerable burden of disease, cardiac risk assessment is an especially important element of preoperative evaluation prior to noncardiac general surgery.3 Globally, an estimated 100 million adults(More)
