    CircR-ZC3HC1 mediates MiR-384-5p/SIRT1 axis to promote neuronal autophagy and relieves ischemic stroke


    BIOCELL, Vol.48, No.3, pp. 491-499, 2024, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2023.047640

    Abstract Objective: Circular RNAs (circRNAs) have been shown to involve in pathological processes of ischemic stroke (IS), including autophagy. This study was designed to explore the effect of circR-ZC3HC1 on neuronal autophagy in IS and the related mechanisms. Methods: Expression of circR-ZC3HC1 in blood samples of IS patients and healthy controls was detected. Hippocampal neurons were treated with oxygen and glucose deprivation (OGD) to establish IS in vitro model. The expression of LC3 and p62 and the number of autophagosomes were examined to evaluate the autophagy level of OGD induced neurons using western blotting and transmission electron… More >

    TianmaGouteng yin attenuates ischemic stroke-induced brain injury by inhibiting the AGE/RAGE pathway


    BIOCELL, Vol.47, No.6, pp. 1345-1352, 2023, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2023.028866

    Abstract Background: Ischemic stroke is characterized by permanent or transient obstruction of blood flow, leading to a growing risk factor and health burden. Tianmagouteng yin (TMG) is commonly used in Chinese medicine to treat cerebral ischemia. The aim of this study was to investigate the neuroprotective effects of TMG against ischemic stroke. Methods: Either permanent middle cerebral artery occlusion (pMCAO) or sham operation was performed on anesthetized Wistar male rats (n = 36). Results: Results demonstrated that TMG administration reduced the infarction volume and mitigated the neurobehavioral deficits. Hematoxylin and eosin (HE) staining and Prussian blue staining revealed More >

    Deep Learning-Enabled Brain Stroke Classification on Computed Tomography Images

    Azhar Tursynova1, Batyrkhan Omarov1,2, Natalya Tukenova3,*, Indira Salgozha4, Onergul Khaaval3, Rinat Ramazanov5, Bagdat Ospanov5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.75, No.1, pp. 1431-1446, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.034400

    Abstract In the field of stroke imaging, deep learning (DL) has enormous untapped potential. When clinically significant symptoms of a cerebral stroke are detected, it is crucial to make an urgent diagnosis using available imaging techniques such as computed tomography (CT) scans. The purpose of this work is to classify brain CT images as normal, surviving ischemia or cerebral hemorrhage based on the convolutional neural network (CNN) model. In this study, we propose a computer-aided diagnostic system (CAD) for categorizing cerebral strokes using computed tomography images. Horizontal flip data magnification techniques were used to obtain more… More >

    Enhanced Detection of Cerebral Atherosclerosis Using Hybrid Algorithm of Image Segmentation

    Shakunthala Masi*, Helenprabha Kuttiappan

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.36, No.1, pp. 733-744, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.025919

    Abstract In medical science for envisaging human body’s phenomenal structure a major part has been driven by image processing techniques. Major objective of this work is to detect of cerebral atherosclerosis for image segmentation application. Detection of some abnormal structures in human body has become a difficult task to complete with some simple images. For expounding and distinguishing neural architecture of human brain in an effective manner, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is one of the most suitable and significant technique. Here we work on detection of Cerebral Atherosclerosis from MRI images of patients. Cerebral Atherosclerosis is… More >

    Modified UNet Model for Brain Stroke Lesion Segmentation on Computed Tomography Images

    Batyrkhan Omarov1,2,3, Azhar Tursynova1,*, Octavian Postolache4, Khaled Gamry5, Aidar Batyrbekov5, Sapargali Aldeshov6,7, Zhanar Azhibekova9, Marat Nurtas5,8, Akbayan Aliyeva6, Kadrzhan Shiyapov10,11

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.71, No.3, pp. 4701-4717, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.020998

    Abstract The task of segmentation of brain regions affected by ischemic stroke is help to tackle important challenges of modern stroke imaging analysis. Unfortunately, at the moment, the models for solving this problem using machine learning methods are far from ideal. In this paper, we consider a modified 3D UNet architecture to improve the quality of stroke segmentation based on 3D computed tomography images. We use the ISLES 2018 (Ischemic Stroke Lesion Segmentation Challenge 2018) open dataset to train and test the proposed model. Interpretation of the obtained results, as well as the ideas for further… More >

    miR-21-3p alleviates neuronal apoptosis during cerebral ischemiareperfusion injury by targeting SMAD2


    BIOCELL, Vol.45, No.1, pp. 49-56, 2021, DOI:10.32604/biocell.2021.013794

    Abstract Cerebral ischemia is due to the formation of blood clots or embolisms in the brain arteries, which leads to local brain tissue necrosis and neural cell apoptosis. Recent studies have shown that microRNA (miRNA) plays an important regulatory role in the pathological process of ischemic injury. The aim of this study is to investigate the role and the mechanism of miR-21-3p and drosophila mothers against decapentaplegic 2 (SMAD2) in cerebral ischemic reperfusion injured (CIRI) neural cells. The CIRI model was established by oxygen-glucose deprivation and recovery process for N2a cells. The cell viability and the… More >

    Systems Neuroprotective Mechanisms in Ischemic Stroke

    Shu Q. Liu*

    Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics, Vol.16, No.2, pp. 75-85, 2019, DOI:10.32604/mcb.2019.06920

    Abstract Ischemic stroke, although causing brain infarction and neurological deficits, can activate innate neuroprotective mechanisms, including regional mechanisms within the ischemic brain and distant mechanisms from non-ischemic organs such as the liver, spleen, and pancreas, supporting neuronal survival, confining brain infarction, and alleviating neurological deficits. Both regional and distant mechanisms are defined as systems neuroprotective mechanisms. The regional neuroprotective mechanisms involve release and activation of neuroprotective factors such as adenosine and bradykinin, inflammatory responses, expression of growth factors such as nerve growth factors and neurotrophins, and activation and differentiation of resident neural stem cells to neurons… More >
