We report a case of a 66-year-old female patient with ischemic cardiomyopathy, who was referred in Nephrology Department for the management of a renal impairment associated-severe hyponatremia, hypokalemia and hypochloremia that occurred after vomiting episodes evolving since 1 month. On admission, the patient was calm with a psychomotor retardation occurring in a context of moderate dehydration. Arterial blood gas analysis outlined a severe metabolic alkalosis. An extra-renal cause of these met...

Can Earth’s ULF Magnetic Micropulsations Induce Brain’s Spurious Activities?

Altair Souza de Assis, Claudio Elias da Silva, Charles Cury
We present in this paper some preliminary studies on how the Earth’s ULF—Ultra Low Frequency magnetic micropulsations might interact with the human brain’s activities. Magnetic micropulsations are magnetospheric plasma wave eigenmodes that are generated at the Earth’s magnetosphere and, via magnetospheric-ionospheric coupling, induce ionospheric currents, and this ionospheric current pattern c

Inhibition of Autophagy Attenuated Cell Damage after OGD/R in SH-SY5Y Cells by Down-Regulating AMPK-Mediated Autophagy Signaling Pathway

Yanxue Zhang, Hongyun Li
Background: Activation of autophagy becomes a new therapeutic target for the treatment of stroke. The aim of this study was to observe the role of autophagy in the model of glucose-oxygen deprivation reoxygenation (OGD/R) in SH-SY5Y cells by interfering with AMPK-mediated autophagy signaling pathway. Methods: The effects of autophagy on OGD/R injury in SH-SY5Y cells were investigated by evalua

Serum Neopterin as a Novel Marker for Carotid Artery Stenosis in Community Subjects

Huanquan Liao, Zhichao Yan, Hongxuan Wang, Hua Hong
Background: Carotid artery stenosis (CAS) is one of the major high-risk mechanisms of stroke. Neopterin, an immune modulator secreted by macro-phages, has been reported to be elevated in patients with cerebrovascular dis-ease. However, an association between serum neopterin level and CAS has not been firmly established. Objective: To investigate the cross-sectional relation-ship between serum neopterin levels and CAS assessed by u
