Question to Mariell L. Jessup, MD as President American Heart Association/American Stroke Association

Dean wrote this…..

Please pass on to Mariell L. Jessup, MD in her responsibility as President
American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
In your Stroke Rounds column, can you address the 5 known causes of the neuronal cascade of death and what is being done to solve them?
1.  Excitotoxicity
2.  Glutamate poisoning
3.  Pericytes strangling capillaries
4.  Inflammatory action leaking through the blood brain barrier.
5. Lysosomal Membrane Permeabilization as a Key Player in Brain Ischemic Cell Death.
I’m just a simple stroke survivor that wants these solved before my next stroke.
Dean Reinke

Hopefully I can find email addresses for the NSA and WSO. Send these questions to every stroke association in the world and all your doctors, Cleveland Clinic, Mayo, etc. etc.
Everyone of these should know the answer off the top of their head. Anything less than that is pure incompetency. And we need to call them out on that. Its time to knock a few heads.

  1. Dean, personally, I care about recovery far more than having these questions answered. It would be fabulous to prevent damage like mine from happening to others, but selfishly I prefer having my body fixed.

    • That will only be possible if we find out how to replicate neuroplasticity. And that will be much harder than these easy tasks. We have to start someplace because we are dealing with simple minded people that need specific directions on what to do.

  2. Unless they figure this stuff out, if I have another stroke, it better damn well kill me. I’m certainly not doing this shit again. I have a killer headache today and I’m pissed off.
