    Dear friends,

    I am pleased to report that the AINA fundraiser to support COVID relief efforts in India was able to raise $42,326 (85% of our $50,000 goal). We sent the first $25,000 to Sewa International on May 17th, the remaining amount will be transferred now. This fundraiser is now concluded.

    On behalf of the AINA executive committee I would like to thank you for your generous contribution to this cause. The peak of the epidemic appears to have passed, but there is a lot of hard work ahead for the medical community in India. Details of Sewa International efforts are available on their website:

    Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) shares risk factors with arterial ischemic events such as ischemic stroke and myocardial infarction, but it is unclear if ICH is associated with future ischemic events. In a pooled prospective cohort study of nearly 50,000 subjects enrolled from four different U.S population-based studies (ARIC, CHS, REGARDS, and NOMAS), Dr. Murthy and colleagues found that ICH was associated with a 2-fold increased risk of an arterial ischemic event, a 3-fold increased risk of ischemic stroke, and a 2-fold heightened risk of myocardial infarction, independent of vascular risk factors and antithrombotic medication use. This study suggests that ICH may be a novel risk marker for subsequent arterial ischemic disease, highlighting the need for improved secondary cardiovascular prevention strategies after ICH.
