PRE-FLAIR received funding from the Else Kroner-Fresenius-Stiftung (2009_A36). Funding was provided for central data collection and analysis; there was no funding for inclusion of patients. We thank the EPITHET (Echoplanar Imaging Thrombolysis Evaluation Trial) investigators, the University of California, Los Angeles Stroke investigators, all co-investigators of VIRAGE, and all our colleagues from the Departments of Neurology and Neuroradiology, and medical and technical staff in the participating centers for their support. In Berlin, data were collected within the 1,000+ study, which has received funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research via the grant Center for Stroke Research Berlin (01 EO 0801). PRE-FLAIR was further supported by the European Union Seventh Framework Program grant agreement No 202213 and No 223153 (European Stroke Network), the Volkswagen Foundation, and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. EPITHET was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (Australia), the National Stroke Foundation (Australia), and the Heart Foundation of Australia.
