Abstract

Despite an increase in the amount of published stroke recovery research, interventions have failed to markedly affect the trajectory of recovery poststroke. We argue that early-phase research to systematically investigate dose is an important contributor to advance the science underpinning stroke recovery. In this article, we aim to (a) define the problem of insufficient use of a systematic approach to early-phase, multidimensional dose articulation research and (b) propose a solution that applies this approach to design a multidimensional phase I trial to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD). We put forward a design template as a decision support tool to increase knowledge of how to de..
