"It's the most innovative trial available for stroke patients today, and one of the best studies I've ever seen," he said. "If we continue to see positive results and the FDA approves this treatment, it can have a tremendous positive effect on the lives of patients recovering from stroke."
After a stroke, most patients have sleep apnea. A University of Michigan-led clinical trial will investigate whether treating it right away will improve outcomes.
A preliminary Phase 2 clinical trial has demonstrated that patients with acute ischemic stroke, the most common type of stroke, can safely tolerate high doses of 3K3A-APC, a promising anti-stroke drug invented at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI). The trial results, announced by pharmaceutical company ZZ Biotech, also show that 3K3A-APC substantially reduced hemorrhage volume and hemorrhage incidence in patients.
PISCES III is a clinical research study to determine whether stem cells injected into a damaged area of the brain can improve function in people with ongoing disability after an ischemic stroke (a stroke that occurs when blood flow to the brain is blocked, such as by a clot). This study is open to U.S. participants.
If you suffered a stroke at least 9 months ago, but not more than 10 years ago, and struggle with hand and arm movement, the Vivistim Clinical Study may be right for you.
In a multicenter study led by Stanford researchers, the number of stroke patients who died or required confinement to nursing homes was nearly cut in half, the biggest improvement seen in any stroke-related trial to date.
