New Material to Help Repair Brain Tissue Damaged by Stroke

One of the reasons why strokes are so devastating is that brain tissue does not exhibit the same healing mechanisms as other tissues that repair themselves quickly. Integrin proteins are responsible for some of the healing processes, including getting new cells to move and having them adhere to the extracellular matrix, and these are not strongly […]

Scientists identify main component of brain repair after stroke

Academics / General Science : Science Codex

Looking at brain tissue from mice, monkeys and humans, scientists have found that a molecule known as growth and differentiation factor 10 (GDF10) is a key player in repair mechanisms following stroke. The findings suggest that GDF1...

A step toward reducing brain damage after stroke

Academics / General Science : Science Codex

After suffering a stroke, about three-fourths of patients exhibit some disability. The extent of a patient's symptoms depends on the degree and location of brain tissue damage following the stroke event. This week in ACS Central Sci...
