Post-stroke neurogenesis boosted with new compound

Written by Freya Leask

In a study recently published in Experimental Neurology, a compound developed by scientists at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine (IA, USA) and the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine (FL, USA) has been demonstrated to minimize loss of mature and newly developed neurons after stroke. The compound, P7C3-A20, was observed both to reduce brain atrophy and promote neurogenesis in stroke models, and could have major implications for the prevention and treatment of stroke. Every year, approximately 130,000 Americans die of stroke and those that do not are often left with long-term physical and cognitive disability. When...
