For anybody not a secret that heavy strokes directly associated with Parkinson's disease. Recently it was revealed the danger of mini, which, often, people do not even suspect, reports Zee News with reference to the research leader Emmanuel Pinto.
The microstroke is a temporary blocking of one of the vessels of the brain. But this short period of time, enough to kill dopaminergic neurons in the area of the brain that is responsible for the coordination, in the so-called black substance.
The experiment that proves this medical fact, was conducted by researchers in mice. They artificially was caused by a stroke that is similar to human, resulting in the striatum were found damage and inflammation. This reaction on the stroke was not a surprise to the researchers. They are much more surprised by the fact that affected also the black substance of the brain.
The analysis conducted in this area revealed that together with inflammation rapidly lost key compound substance P. After six days, was repeated check of the brain, which scientists have identified neurodegeneration in a black substance, such as dopaminergic neurons died.
Such course of events is a direct way to the development of Parkinson's disease. Thus, when using drugs that prevent this damage, you can delay, or even prevent the development of Parkinson's disease.
