Introduction: What they say
A recent study from the Department of Pharmacology, Second Military Medical University, Shanghai, China; Department of Science and Education, Shandong Provincial Hospital affiliated to Shandong University, Jinan, China; and Center of Stroke, Beijing Institute for Brain Disorders, Beijing, China (C.-Y.M.) shows that “Regenerative Neurogenesis After Ischemic Stroke Promoted by Nicotinamide Phosphoribosyltransferase-Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Cascade” This study was published, in the June 9 2015 issue of the journal Stroke, by Prof Miao CY, Zhao Y, and others.
What we say:
On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Amino acid therapy for Stroke: L-Leucine, a branched chain amino acid, augments regenerative neurogenesis after Ischemic Stroke and ameliorates stroke damage and neurological deficits via up regulation of its target gene NAMPT [easy_payment currency=”USD”]
From research findings to therapeutic opportunity:
This study suggests that L-Leucine, by increasing the expression of of its target genes, it may: (1) increase the expression of NAMPT; (2) increase Sirtuins expression; (3) enhance neural stem cells; (4) promote neural functional recovery; (5) activate neuronal survival pathway; (6) promote post-ischemic regeneration after stroke; and (7) attenuate neurological deficits (Fig.1).
Together, this study suggests that pharmacological formulations encompassing “L-Leucine or its analogues either alone or in combination with other drugs” may be used to treat patients suffering from stroke and neurological deficits.
