The purpose of this study is to determine if YM872 in combination with t-PA can reduce disability and brain damage from stroke. YM872 or placebo will be given as a continuous intravenous (iv) infusion for 24 hours. It is important that the study medication, YM872 or placebo, is administered prior to the completion of the t-PA administration. The clinical effects of YM872 in addition to t-PA will be determined by assessing neurological function and disability scores at follow up visits through Day 90 of the study.

This study will investigate the effects of a potential neuroprotectant compound, YM872, in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke. The study will determine if a 24-hour infusion of YM872,...
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 ...
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
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 ...
This is a pilot study of thrombolytic therapy in patients with ischemic stroke who present with stroke symptoms upon awakening.
Intravenous infusion of alteplase is used for thrombolysis before endovascular thrombectomy for ischemic stroke. Tenecteplase, which is more fibrin-specific and has longer activity than alteplase, is ...
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...
Recanalization of intracranial thrombus is associated with improved clinical outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke. The association of intravenous alteplase treatment and thrombus characteris...
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...
An international cluster-randomized quality improvement trial to increase the adherence to evidence-based therapies for acute ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack patients: Rationale and design of the BRIDGE STROKE Trial.
Translating evidence into clinical practice in the management of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) and transient ischemic attack (TIA) is challenging especially in low- and middle-income countries.
The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.
A drug combination of aspirin and dipyridamole that functions as a PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR, used to prevent THROMBOSIS and STROKE in TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK patients.
Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
Sudden death from overwork, most often as a result of acute CARDIOVASCULAR STROKE.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
