The primary objective of the study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of SPG stimulation with the ISS in patients with an acute ischemic stroke in the anterior circulation initiated within 24 hours from stroke onset.
The purpose of this clinical study is to determine whether the addition of an oral Factor XIa Inhibitor to Aspirin and Clopidogrel is more effective than standard therapy in secondary stroke prevention. The safety of this treatment will also be studied.
The TRUST study is a non-interventional, prospective, multicenter, international, single arm and non-inferiority study. It is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of mechanical thrombectomy of the CATCHVIEW device compared to SOLITAIRE 2/FR based on an objective performance criterion (OPC) defined with available and published clinical evidence gathered through the Solitaire clinical trials in the arterial revascularization of patients with acute ischemic stroke.
This study is a prospective, multi-center, open-label, end-point blinded, randomized, parallel positive control, non-inferiority clinical trial, with a purpose to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Hemo Jirui intracranial thrombus aspiration catheter system for endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke by comparison with stent retriever (Solitaire FR). The trial is anticipated to last from November 2018 to May 2019, with 204 subjects recruited from 15-20 clinical trial centers in China.
The primary efficacy objective of the MOST trial is to determine if argatroban (100µg/kg bolus followed by 3µg/kg per minute for 12 hours) or eptifibatide (135µg/kg bolus followed by 0.75µg/kg/min infusion for two hours) results in improved 90-day modified Rankin scores (mRS) as compared with placebo in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients treated with 0.9mg/kg IV rt-PA within three hours of symptom onset. Patients may also receive endovascular thrombectomy (ET) per usual care. Time of onset is defined as the last time the patient was last known to be well.
Trial investigates the benefits and harms of Levodopa /Carbidopa 100/25mg compared to placebo (given in addition to standardized rehabilitation based on the principles of motor learning) and whether there is an association with a patient-relevant enhancement of functional recovery in acute ischemic stroke patients. Study participants will be randomized 1:1.
This is a phase one study investigating the safety and efficacy profile of allogeneic cord blood hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPC, Cord Blood), when administered by intravenous infusion and intrathecal injection, in subjects who have sustained an acute ischemic stroke within the past 9 days. Treatment period consisting of 3 sessions of both intravenous infusion and intrathecal injection (or intravenous infusion in conjunction with mannitol for subjects unable to tolerate intrathecal injection). Follow-up phone calls for adverse event (AE) assessment will be conducted at 1 week, 1 month, and 2 months after the first intravenous/intrathecal treatment. A follow up clinic visit at 3 months, 6 months and 12 months will include a neurological exam, MRI, and clinical laboratory tests/urinalysis.
AngongNiuhuang pill has obvious effects on the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular, especially the cerebral vessels. Pharmacological experiments confirmed that AngongNiuhuang pill can protect blood-brain barrier, reduce capillary permeability, improve the tolerance of cerebral ischemia and hypoxia, improve oxidative stress injury, thus protecting brain tissue. Clinical studies have also confirmed that AngongNiuhuang pill can increase the GCS score, reduce coma, improve nerve function defect and promote nerve function recovery. The primary purpose of this trial was to evaluate the effect of AngongNiuhuang pill and placebo on the improvement of life function in patients with ischemic stroke at 90 days in acute phase.
Stroke remains the leading cause of disability in the United States. An estimated 40-50% of all ischemic strokes are caused by large-vessel occlusion of a major cerebral artery (LVO). However, in some cases, the occlusion results in mild symptoms, at least initially, and these patients frequently do not receive any treatment. These strokes, however, may result in unfavorable long-term outcomes despite relatively benign initial course. Recent large randomized studies in patients with severe stroke symptoms and associated LVO showed efficacy and safety of endovascular mechanical thrombectomy, but patients with mild symptoms were not specifically addressed. Based on the investigators' own data and limited evidence in the literature, the investigators propose that early mechanical thrombectomy in patients with LVO associated with mild stroke symptoms (defined as NIHSS ≤ 5) is safe, and results in favorable long-term patient outcomes. The objective of this prospective pilot study is to assess the safety and outcomes of mechanical thrombectomy in patients presenting with acute ischemic stroke due to a large vessel occlusion in the anterior or posterior circulation under 24 hours with mild symptoms (NIHSS ≤ 5).
Ischemic stroke is the main cause of disability in the world. More than 70% of stroke patients show various degrees of neural function impairment. Motor rehabilitation in acute phase is beneficial for improving patient's structure and function of corticospinal tract. However, it is difficult to obtain effective rehabilitation during the acute phase of stroke because of the insufficiency of professional rehabilitation therapists in stroke wards in China.The present study is to verify that nursing-directed rehabilitation can compensate for the shortage of professional rehabilitation therapists. Our previous study indicated that nursing-directed motor function rehabilitation provided more obvious effect on stroke patients with a weighted corticospinal tract lesion load (wCST-LL) smaller than 2ml. We assume that implementing rehabilitation nursing based on the wCST-LL can realize nursing-directed, wCST-LL-based precision motor rehabilitation during acute phase of ischemic stroke.The present study is to conduct randomized clinical trial to confirm the effect of nursing-directed precision rehabilitation for motor function in acute stroke patients grouped by wCST-LL, and to evaluate the effect of this precision rehabilitation by using functional scale, and to explore the histopathologic mechanism of the precision rehabilitation nursing by mean of neuroelectrophysiology and neuroimaging examination. This study might provide theoretical support for motor rehabilitation in patients during acute phase of stroke.
