Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Brain healing after injury given a natural boost

While this seems to be for TBI, it would seem likely to help after stroke also. But we will never know since we have fucking failures of stroke associations doing nothing about a stroke strategy or anything requiring leadership. You are screwed, along with your children and grandchildren. And a PhD candidate did this.

Brain healing after injury given a natural boost
We may be able to kick-start healing after a traumatic brain injury by boosting levels of a protein made naturally within the brain, according to new research conducted at the University of Adelaide.
Injecting a particular protein called (APP) up to five hours post injury found that the reached the brain, reduced inflammation, and prevented ongoing damage.
"Injected APP can amplify the body's natural levels to trigger a better healing process following ," says Stephanie Plummer, who conducted the research as part of her PhD.
Stephanie's studies also revealed that injecting the protein fragment leads to partial rescuing of physical abilities.
With trauma, the brain produces this protein to reduce cell injury and inflammation. Stephanie investigated the capacity of injecting a fragment of the protein to initiate the same response.
"Traumatic brain injury is very debilitating, and we don't currently have any treatments that lessen its impacts," Stephanie says.
"Injecting APP may one day provide a simple and effective therapy to limit brain damage and physical debilitation following a traumatic injury."
Stephanie's work to date has been using mice and rats. She and her colleagues plan to conduct more research to investigate the potential use of APP in humans.
