Repetitive compression of limbs appears to aid recovery from deadly brain bleeds

Scientists want to know more about how an inexpensive, low-risk treatment may improve recovery from the most deadly type of stroke. Called remote ischemic conditioning, or RIC, it involves successive bouts of compressing then relaxing an arm or leg with a blood pressure-like cuff, most typically for four cycles of five minutes of inflation followed by five minutes of deflation and enables better use of a natural pathway for brain repair.

Brain estrogen is key to brain protection when oxygen is low

When the brain isn’t getting enough oxygen, estrogen produced by neurons in both males and females hyperactivates another brain cell type called astrocytes to step up their usual support and protect brain function.

Patients with recently discovered antibodies have more severe myasthenia gravis

A study of 181 patients at 16 sites across the country who test negative for two antibodies long known to cause muscle-weakening myasthenia gravis, found that about 15% test positive for one of two newly discovered antibodies that also attack the point of communication between nerves and muscle.
