   STROKE WEBINAR #24

 STROKE Webinar Series
brought to you by STROKE

Stroke cover May 2015                   

NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE

Join Stroke, a journal of the American Heart Association ǀ American Stroke Association, for a new webinar:

Intracranial Atherosclerosis: Current Status
Ka Sing Lawrence Wong, MD, Presenter

Webinar #24 Registration Homepage     

Highlights:   

Intracranial atherosclerosis is a common cause of ischemic stroke worldwide, especially among stroke patients of Asian, African or Hispanic ancestry. Recent advances in neuroimaging not only facilitate the diagnosis but also elucidate the pathophysiology of intracranial atherosclerosis. However, treatment of intracranial atherosclerosis remains a challenge. This lecture will summarize the current status of our knowledge in the epidemiology, diagnosis, pathogenesis and potential treatments.  

In this lecture, Dr. Lawrence Wong will discuss various aspects of intracranial atherosclerosis:

  1. Epidemiology and the key differences between different ethnicities.
  2. Various diagnostic methods such as transcranial Doppler, CT/MR angiogram, digital subtraction angiogram and high-resolution MRI plague imaging.
  3. Pathophysiology including artery-to-artery embolism, hemodynamic compromise and branch occlusive disease.
  4. Key results of randomized clinical trials.
  5. Ongoing clinical trials and large clinical studies.  

New Stroke CME/CE Activities

Key sessions from the 2015 International Stroke Conference are now available on-demand at learn.heart.org and offer CME/CE credit. Topics include:


Understanding and Applying the Endovascular Trials

The results of the four recently presented/published trials for acute ischemic stroke herald the dawn of a new era in the treatment of patients with large vessel occlusion amenable to endovascular intervention. Additional trials are underway or have been stopped earlier because of the positive results observed in the initial trials. Hopefully, the ongoing trials will largely amplify and build upon the results observed in the MR CLEAN, ESCAPE, EXTEND-IA and SWIFT PRIME trials. At this time, it is important for the medical community, health care planners and policy makers to have interpretation and guidance from experts about the trial results currently available for help in steering them as to how the trial results should be utilized in daily practice and for the local organization of acute stroke care. To accomplish this goal, Stroke invited a panel of experts with a wide range of backgrounds to provide insights. . . .

 Call for Papers
National Cholesterol Month

In recognition of National Cholesterol Month (September), the Editors of ATVB are soliciting the submission of original manuscripts addressing a broad spectrum of topics addressing cholesterol metabolism from laboratory, clinical or population research.

The editors encourage submission of original articles that deal with basic, clinical, and population studies of cholesterol metabolism.

Examples of interest areas include:

1.  Cellular cholesterol metabolism
2.  Transcription regulation by sterols
3.  Cellular uptake and efflux of cholesterol and other sterols
4.  Lipoprotein metabolism and physiology in model systems and humans
5.  Human genetics of cholesterol-related traits
6.  Mechanistic studies of cholesterol-lowering drugs in model systems and humans
7.  Pharmacogenetics of cholesterol-lowering drugs

Responding authors should indicate in their cover letter that the submitted manuscript is in response to this call for papers. The manuscript will undergo normal peer review. If accepted, the article will be published on-line immediately and published in print together with other studies appearing in response to this call in an issue of ATVB that will be highlighted in the "National Cholesterol Month"  (September).

The deadline for articles to be considered within this special Call for Papers is July20, 2015.  Papers will need to have undergone peer review and be considered accepted by this time.

Dimorphic effects of TGF-beta signaling during aortic aneurysm progression in mice suggest a combinatorial therapy for Marfan syndrome
Abstract | Free Full Text | PDF

From the editors:
This article reports that inhibition of TGF-beta has biophasic effects on TAA in a Marfan mouse model.  Inhibition of TGF-beta  in an early stage augments aortic pathology, whereas inhibition of TGF-beta in a late stage improves aortic pathology.
