The purpose of this trial is to determine if intravenous administration of the metal ion trapping agent DP-b99 within 1-9 hours of acute ischemic stroke onset, and then for 3 additional days (4 consecutive days in total) is effective in improving long term outcome. Patients will be followed up for 3 months after the stroke.
This will be a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, multi-national, parallel-arm, pivotal study comparing a placebo group to a DP-b99 group treated with intravenous 1.0 mg/kg/d for 4 consecutive days, in patients with an entry National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score of 10-16 and a clinical syndrome that includes at least 1 of the following: language dysfunction, visual field defect or neglect (specifically, at least 1 point on NIHSS items 3, 9 or 11). Alternatively, patients without at least 1 point on NIHSS items 3, 9 or 11 may be enrolled if routine diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW MRI) or computed tomography perfusion scan indicates that the acute stroke involves the cerebral cortex, and as long as the overall acute neurological deficit is within the range of 10-16 NIHSS points. Clinical trial material (CTM) will be administered within 1 to 9 hours after the onset of acute ischemic stroke symptoms. Subjects will be randomized at a ratio of 1:1 to receive either DP-b99 or placebo. After the initial hospitalization (which should be at least 4 days) follow up visits will take place on study days 30 and 90.

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.
Considerable researches suggest that high level of homocysteine (Hcy) is associated with the risk of ischemic stroke. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) parameters have also been confirmed as...
This study investigated risks of short-term (1 and 3 months) and long-term (1-year) recurrent stroke associated with glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in patients with acute ischemic stroke.
Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A (Lp-PLA) is a well-known risk factor of atherosclerotic vascular diseases. Nevertheless, its role in the acute phase of ischemic stroke is still unclear. The aim...
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.
