The purpose of this study is to determine whether simvastatin treatment started within the first 12 hours from stroke onset improves neurological and functional outcomes, evaluated at seventh day/discharge or at the third month.
Also, to demonstrate that simvastatin is safe and not associated with higher rates of hemorrhagic transformation in patients who receive thrombolysis.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

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.
