Abstract

Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) greatly increase the risk of stroke, but few reports have examined subsequent stroke in patients with history of TIA. This retrospective, hospital-based study included 506 consecutive patients with acute ischemic stroke who were admitted to our hospital. The clinical features and prognosis were compared between patients with and without TIA. Multiple logistic regression analysis was also performed to identify predictors for poor outcome. Of 506 patients, 114 (22.5%) had a history of TIA. Compared to patients without previous TIAs (non-TIA group), patients with previous TIAs (TIA group) were significantly more likely to have hypertension (76.3% vs 64.3%; P = .016), dyslipidemia (57.0% vs 41.1%; P = .003), chronic kidney disease (28.1% v 15.1%; P = .001), intracranial major artery stenosis (51.8% vs 36.2%; P = .018), and large artery atherothrombosis (43.9% vs 28.3%; P = .002). There was no difference in the previous use of antithrombotic medications between the groups (36.0% vs 35.2%; P = .881). Although stroke severity on admission was similar, poor functional outcome (modified Rankin Scale score ≥4) was significantly more frequent in the TIA group, and history of TIA was an independent determi...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Computational Methods for Protein Structures

Computational methods employing machine learning algorithms are powerful tools that can be used to predict the effect of mutations on protein structure. This is important in neurodegenerative disorders, where some mutations can cause the formation of toxic protein aggregations. This feed follows the latests insights into the relationships between mutation and protein structure leading to better understanding of disease.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Epigenetic Memory

Epigenetic memory refers to the heritable genetic changes that are not explained by the DNA sequence. Find the latest research on epigenetic memory here.
