Study: Young Black, Latino People Fare Better than White People After Bleeding Stroke

American Academy of Neurology (AAN)

Does race play a role in how well someone recovers after stroke? New research focused on younger people who have had a hemorrhagic stroke found that young black and Latino people may be less likely than young white people to be disabled or even die within three months after a stroke. The new study is published in the January 22, 2020, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Surprise discovery shakes up our understanding of gene expression

University of Chicago

A group of University of Chicago scientists has uncovered a previously unknown way that our genes are made into reality. Rather than directions going one-way from DNA to RNA to proteins, the latest study shows that RNA itself modulates how DNA is transcribed—using a chemical process that is increasingly apparent to be vital to biology. The discovery has significant implications for our understanding of human disease and drug design.

Newswise: Both simple and advanced imaging can predict best candidates for thrombectomy in stroke patients

Both simple and advanced imaging can predict best candidates for thrombectomy in stroke patients

University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston

Both simple and advanced computed tomography (CT) were effective in accurately predicting which stroke patients would benefit from endovascular thrombectomy to remove a large cerebral clot, but together they were even better, reported researchers at UTHealth in Houston.
