Postprandial Glucose as a Risk Factor for Elevated Intraocular Pressure

The aim of this study was to investigate the association between postprandial glucose and intraocular pressure in a relatively healthy population. We examined 1,439 adults getting a health check-up in a health promotion center at Tri-Service General Hospital (TSGH) in Taiwan between 2012 and 2013. All participants underwent examinations to measure metabolic variables and...

Combined LRRK2 mutation, aging and chronic low dose oral rotenone as a model of Parkinson’s disease

Aging, genetics and environmental toxicity are important etiological factors in Parkinson’s disease (PD). However, its pathogenesis remains unclear. A major obstacle is the lack of an appropriate experimental model which incorporates genetic susceptibility, aging and prolonged environmental toxicity. Here, we explored the interplay amongst these factors using mutant LRRK2R1441G...

Validation of the RRE-90 Scale to Predict Stroke Risk after Transient Symptoms with Infarction: A Prospective Cohort Study

Background and Purpose The risk of stroke after a transient ischemic attack (TIA) for patients with a positive diffusion-weighted image (DWI), i.e., transient symptoms with infarction (TSI), is much higher than for those with a negative DWI. The aim of this study was to validate the predictive value of a web-based recurrence risk estimator (RRE; http://www.nmr.mgh.harvard.edu/RRE...

Homocysteine Level Is Associated with White Matter Hyperintensity Locations in Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke

Background and Purpose The relationship between plasma level of total homocysteine (tHcy) and white matter hyperintensities (WMHs), especially in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS), is controversial. The present study investigated the association between these two as well as WMH locations in a large cohort of patients with AIS. Methods Consecutive patients were reviewed...

Existence of nontrivial weak homoclinic orbits for second-order impulsive differential equations

A sufficient condition is obtained for the existence of nontrivial weak homoclinic orbits of second-order impulsive differential equations by employing the mountain pass theorem, a weak convergence argument and a weak version of Lieb’s lemma.

The Global Cognition, Frontal Lobe Dysfunction and Behavior Changes in Chinese Patients with Multiple System Atrophy

Background Studies on cognition in multiple system atrophy (MSA) patients are limited. Methods A total of 110 MSA patients were evaluated using Addenbrooke's Cognitive Examination-Revised (ACE-R), Frontal Assessment Battery (FAB), Frontal Behavioral Inventory (FBI), and Unified MSA Rating Scale (UMSARS) tests. Fifty-five age-, sex-, education- and domicile-matched healthy...

External Validation of the A2DS2 Score to Predict Stroke-Associated Pneumonia in a Chinese Population: A Prospective Cohort Study

Background and Purpose The A2DS2 score was recently developed from the Berlin Stroke Registry for predicting in-hospital pneumonia after acute ischemic stroke and performed well in an external validation in the North-west Germany Stroke Registry. It could be a useful tool for risk stratification in clinical practice or stroke trials. We aimed to prospectively validate the...

Correlation Analysis of Sleep Quality and Youth Ischemic Stroke
