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 lays out what needs to be done to get stroke survivors closer to 100% recovery. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Inflammatory molecules might become both biomarkers and therapeutic targets for stroke management

Who the fuck is going to take responsibility for solving this neuronal cascade of death problem? Or don't we have ANY LEADERS in stroke? Don't just tell me we have a problem, SOLVE IT!

 Inflammatory molecules might become both biomarkers and therapeutic targets for stroke management 

First Published August 6, 2018 Review Article
Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death and the most frequent cause of disability worldwide. Currently, stroke diagnosis is based on neuroimaging; therefore, the lack of a rapid tool to diagnose stroke is still a major concern. In addition, therapeutic approaches to combat ischemic stroke are still scarce, since the only approved therapies are directed toward restoring blood flow to the affected brain area. However, due to the reduced time window during which these therapies are effective(And tPA is so ineffective; tPA has an appalling failure rate of 88% getting to full recovery.) , few patients benefit from them; therefore, alternative treatments are urgently needed to reduce stroke brain damage in order to improve patients’ outcome. The inflammatory response triggered after the ischemic event plays an important role in the progression of stroke; consequently, the study of inflammatory molecules in the acute phase of stroke has attracted increasing interest in recent decades. Here, we provide an overview of the inflammatory processes occurring during ischemic stroke, as well as the potential for these inflammatory molecules to become stroke biomarkers and the possibility that these candidates will become interesting neuroprotective(Stop using neuroprotection, it gives NO sense of urgency.) therapeutic targets to be blocked or stimulated in order to modulate inflammation after stroke.
