Nrf2 as a Therapeutic Target for Stroke and Neurodegeneration VDM Verlag Dr. Müller

Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability in§North America. §One major cause of nerve tissue damage during stroke§is the §accumulation of reactive oxygen species- molecules§that steal §electrons from healthy cells in a process known as§oxidation. This §thesis describes a novel approach to increase§antioxidant levels in §order to maintain oxidative balance and prevent§cellular damage §during stroke. The stress-responsive transcription§factor, Nrf2, is §able to launch the endogenous mechanisms of cellular§defense and §repair. Nrf2 represents a master switch that§coordinates tens to §hundreds of antioxidant and detoxification genes§working in §synergy. In rodent models of stroke and§neurodegeneration, §increased Nrf2 activity was found to promote neuronal§survival and §improve recovery of limb function weeks to months§following injury. §Interestingly, a number of molecules that activate§Nrf2 are found in §cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli sprouts,§suggesting the §possibility of practical diet-based therapies.

Sensory Re-education of the Hand After Stroke Whurr Publishers Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Stroke patients continue to present a major challenge to the rehabilitation professions. In particular, the "rehabilitated" patient with a useless hand remains an all too common phenomenon. This book focuses on the sensory perceptual disturbances caused by stroke which, even if slight can be the crucial factor in poor hand function. A wide--ranging review is presented of the processes of functional reorganisation by which the brain responds to the demands posed by injury as well as by learning. An inescapable conclusion from this literature is that any therapy which aims to harness these processes for the restoration of function after stroke needs to engage the patienta s attention and motivation. This is followed by a detailed description of the method of Sensory Re--education developed by the author through long experience with patients and culminating in a clinical trial which establised its effectiveness. While the book is intended primarily for physiotherapists and occupational therapists, it contains much to interest all who are concerned with brain function in health and disease, including neurologists and neuropsychologists, as well as stroke patients and their families. Contents* Introduction* The Challenge: Stroke and its Aftermath* The Effectiveness of Therapy* The Quest for a Different Approach* Sensory Loss in Stroke: Sensory Testing and the Frequency and Types of Deficit* The Functional Implications of Sensory Loss* The Theoretical Basis of Sensory Re--education: Sources* Peripheral Nerve Lesions; Central Lesions* Guide--lines for Intervention* Contributions from Psychology: Attention; Motivation* The Essentials of Sensory Re--education: The Focus on the Hand* The Therapeutic Relationship* The Protocol for a Sensory Task* Summary* The Curriculum I: How to Use the Curriculum* Lessons in Touch* The Curriculum II: Lessons in Proprioception* Lessons in the Recognition of Objects and Their Qualities* Suggestions for Homework* Validation of the Method: Theoretical Considerations* A Controlled Trial* The Next Step* Wider Applications: Sensory Problems in Standing and Walking After Stroke* Cerebral Palsy* Other Conditions* Wider Applications* Conclusion

Physical Therapy for the Stroke Patient Thieme Publishing Group

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Clinical evidence clearly demonstrates that physical therapeutic measures begun as soon as possible after a stroke, often within 24 to 48 hours, greatly increase everyday competence and quality of life. Physical Therapy for the Stroke Patient: Early Stage Rehabilitation covers all the issues that physical therapists must deal with in this critical period: assessment of patients - abilities; care during the acute phase; early mobilization; effects of medication; risk factors; ethical questions; and much more. It provides complete guidelines on how to examine and treat the patient, the "dosage" of physical therapy required, and the key differences between early and late stage rehabilitation after stroke. Special Features:§- Information-packed chapter on§- Optimizing Functional Motor Recovery after Stroke, - written by J. Carr and R. Shepherd, pioneers in the field and the first to correlate motor learning and stroke recovery§- Case studies throughout the book offering direct, hands-on examples of evaluation and treatment methods§- Nearly 150 color photographs demonstrating step-by-step physical therapy techniques used in actual practice§- Hundreds of references to the literature that support the evidence-based approach presented in the book For all physical and occupational therapists who must answer the question, "How much therapy will help my patient?", this book provides clear, well-informed answers. Not only will it increase your therapeutic skills and confidence, but it will also expand your knowledge of the medical issues and long-term outcomes for the post-stroke patients in your care.

Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury National Academies Press

In October 2011, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released the report Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury: Evaluating the Evidence, assessing the published evidence for the effectiveness of using cognitive rehabilitation therapy (CRT) to treat people with traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI has gained increasing attention in the past 15 years because of its status as the signature wound of American military conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Growing numbers of U.S. service members are suffering traumatic brain injuries and are surviving them, given that (a) the majority of traumatic brain injuries are mild and (b) lifesaving measures for more severe injuries have significantly improved. People with any level of injury can require ongoing health care in their recovery, helping them to regain (or compensate for) their losses of function and supporting their full integration into their social structure and an improved quality of life. One form of treatment for TBI is CRT, a systematic, goal-oriented approach to helping patients overcome cognitive impairments. The Department of Defense (DoD) asked the IOM to evaluate CRT for traumatic brain injury in order to guide the DoD's use and coverage in the Military Health System. Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury: Evaluating the Evidence was the IOM's resulting study of the evidence. The report's conclusions revolved around the fact that there is little continuity among research studies of the effectiveness of different types of CRT, and there exist only small amounts of evidence (or, in many cases, none) demonstrating the effectiveness of using CRT to treat TBI-although the evidence that does exist generally indicates that CRT interventions have some effectiveness. The workshop brought together experts in health services administration, research, and clinical practice from the civilian and military arenas in order to discuss the barriers for evaluating the effectiveness of CRT care and for identifying suggested taxonomy, terminology, timing, and ways forward for CRT researchers. The workshop consisted of individuals and was not intended to constitute a comprehensive group. Select decision makers in the Military Health System and Veterans Affairs (VA) and researchers were invited to participate. The workshop was designed to spur thinking about (1) the types of research necessary to move the field forward toward evidence-based clinical guidelines, (2) what the translational pipeline looks like and what its current deficiencies are, and (3) considerations that decision makers may choose to use as they decide what research they will support and decide how they will balance the urgency of the need with the level of evidence for CRT interventions. Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury: Model Study Protocols and Frameworks to Advance the State of the Science summarizes the happenings of the workshop.
