The chemical element selenium, an essential nutrient for humans and other animals, protects the brain after a stroke and may be a basis for future stroke therapies, according to a study from scientists at Burke Neurological Institute and Weill Cornell Medicine.
A team of scientists have discovered that selenium, a micronutrient, can help boost the antioxidant system on the heels of stroke in animals and suggests that a similar treatment could be used to limit brain damage in patients. Stroke is a leading cause of disability and death in the United States, occurring once every 40 seconds.
