The main objective of this study is to investigate the tolerability of enecadin in patients with acute ischemic stroke. Furthermore, the pharmacokinetics of enecadin in both male and female patients with acute ischemic stroke will be assessed. Efficacy trends will be evaluated up to day 30 post stroke.
In the acute stage of ischemic stroke, an ischemic core characterized by a marked decrease in blood flow is present, leading to irreversible neuronal damage at an early stage. Around the boundary of the ischemic core, there is a region called ischemic penumbra in which functional recovery is possible after recirculation of blood flow within several hours after the onset, even though the blood flow is markedly decreased. Prevention of nerve cell death in the ischemic penumbra by neuroprotective therapy should greatly improve outcome and prognosis of acute ischemic stroke.

Several studies have shown that high level of plasma C-reactive protein (CRP) is associated with stroke outcomes and future vascular events, and a decrease in serum triiodothyronine (T3) was reported ...
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.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
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.
