Autophagy in ischemic stroke – interactive pathway
Stroke is an aspect of cardiovascular disease, resulting from an interruption of the blood supply to a part of the brain. Such an interruption can be caused by a clot blocking a blood vessel (ischemic stroke) or as a result of a blood vessel bursting (hemorrhagic stroke). Ischemic stroke accounts for around 80% of all strokes.
Recent studies have found autophagy to be a key regulatory factor in ischemic stroke, unveiling a new range of potential therapeutic targets for neuroprotection.
