The purpose of this study is to confirm the efficacy and safety of intravenously administered alteplase in patients with acute ischemic stroke based on the rate of recanalization assessed by magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), the rate of patients with a modified Rankin Scale (mRS) score of 0-1, and the incidence of symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (sICH), in comparison with the data reported in the current literature.

The principle research question is: in patients with acute ischaemic stroke eligible for IV thrombolysis, is tenecteplase superior in efficacy to alteplase, based on functional outcome as ...
This is a pilot study of thrombolytic therapy in patients with ischemic stroke who present with stroke symptoms upon awakening.
After intravenous thrombolysis, the overall recanalization rate is 46%, and recclusion after initial recanalization occurs in 14-34%. In the MR TEA, the investigators compared the effects ...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of alteplase when administered between 3 and 4.5 hours after onset of stroke symptoms in Chinese patients with acute ischemic stroke
Based on previous studies comparing different rt-PA doses, we performed a clinical trial with 0.6mg/kg, which is lower than the internationally approved dosage of 0.9mg/kg, aiming to asses...
The benefit of thrombolysis in ischemic stroke patients without a visible vessel occlusion still requires investigation. This study tested the hypothesis that non-lacunar stroke patients with no visib...
The purpose of this study is to assess the benefit of bedside alteplase preparation as a component of the acute stroke process.
Tenecteplase (TNK-tPA) is a promising third-generation plasminogen activator, because of its greater fibrin specificity and longer half-life than alteplase. There is a paucity of studies on intravenou...
Ischemic stroke with large-vessel occlusion can be treated with alteplase and/or endovascular therapy; however, the administration of each treatment is time sensitive.
Despite the increasing incidence of acute ischemic stroke in the United States, many health care facilities remain unprepared to manage patients with acute stroke, including the administration of intr...
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.
A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)
A condition caused by the failure of body to dissipate heat in an excessively hot environment or during PHYSICAL EXERTION in a hot environment. Contrast to HEAT EXHAUSTION, the body temperature in heat stroke patient is dangerously high with red, hot skin accompanied by DELUSIONS; CONVULSIONS; or COMA. It can be a life-threatening emergency and is most common in infants and the elderly.
A strain of Rattus norvegicus with elevated blood pressure used as a model for studying hypertension and stroke.
