IMPROVING STROKE OUTCOMES: ATTENUATING PROGRESSION AND RECURRENCE
Grant number: 1013612 | Funding period: 2012 - 2016
Stroke is the second most common cause of death and major cause disability. There are few proven interventions, so we need to introduce new ones. We developed a bench to bedside program to introduce new stroke therapies and its early secondary prevention. Our general goal is to provide evidence for their effectiveness and safety. We will use animal stroke models, markers in the blood to help diagnose and predict stroke outcome and imaging to help select patients for several clinical trials.
