This study evaluates the effectiveness of stochastic resonance electric stimulation on neuromuscular control and proprioception in healthy and individuals with stroke.
This research study is to find out if brain stimulation at different dosage level combined with an efficacy-proven rehabilitation therapy can improve arm function. The stimulation technique is called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). The treatment uses direct currents to stimulate specific parts of the brain affected by stroke. The adjunctive rehabilitation therapy is called "modified Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy" (mCIMT). During this therapy the subject will wear a mitt on the hand of the arm that was not affected by a stroke and force to use the weak arm. The study will test 3 different doses of brain stimulation in combination with mCIMT to find out the most promising one.
Stroke can lead to weakness and spasticity in the arm or hand. The purpose of this study is to optimize the design of gentle vibratory stimulation delivered to the hands of individuals with chronic stroke, and explore the effect on range of movement and spasticity.
The objective of this Phase 1 trial is to assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of AER-271 in health subjects.
This is a pilot randomised control trial to assess the safety, compliance, and acceptability of delivering a 6-week programme of remote ischaemic conditioning (RIC) to stroke patients suffering with fatigue, and study feasibility. A minimum of 34 patients who have suffered an ischeamic or haemorrhagic stroke and who suffer from fatigue, will be recruited and randomised to receive a 6-week programme of either RIC or a sham intervention.
Background and purpose. Even if periprocedural cerebral microembolism associated with carotid endarterectomy or stenting usually does not manifest as clinically overt stroke, neuropsychological disturbances resulting from these events represent an important clinical and socioeconomic problem. Still, it remains unclear whether the use proximal protection can lower the incidence of cerebral embolism associated with the treatment of carotid stenosis. Materials and methods. This was a prospective randomised single-centre study, which was aimed at comparison of surgical eversion endarterectomy with stenting under proximal protection in symptomatic patients. The investigators evaluated the incidence of new ischaemic lesions revealed by the diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging 2-4 days after the treatment and neurologic events.
Intracranial atherosclerotic disease is the most common cause of ischemic stroke that is directly attributed to the progression or rupture of intracranial high-risk plaque in Asia. Many studies mainly from Euro-American population with a focus on extracranial carotid plaque have fully demonstrated the advantages of intensive statin therapy on stabilizing or reversing plaque burden, reversing plaque composition presenting that lipid-rich necrotic core (LRNC) is gradually replaced by fibrous tissue, and even reversing pattern of arterial remodeling to reduce the occurrence of cerebrovascular events. Yet, direct evidence of the effect of intensive statin therapy on intracranial atherosclerotic plaques is lacking and the effect of statin intensity and duration on intracranial plaque burden and composition is still unclear. High resolution magnetic resonance imaging (HRMRI) is a new and non-invasive technique that enable to assess the morphologic characteristics of vascular wall and plaque composition of intracranial artery. Based on above discussion, the investigators conduct this study to further determine the effect of intensive statin in ischemic stroke with intracranial atherosclerotic plaques.
This study aims to determine safety and feasibility of non-invasive transcutaneous cervical Vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS) when delivered promptly after clinical diagnosis of acute stroke. Vagus nerve stimulation will be performed via GammaCore® device. A total of 60 patients will be randomized to each of 3 different groups; 'standard dose' vagal stimulation, 'high dose' vagal stimulation, and 'sham stimulation' (1:1:1 ratio). Adverse device events, serious adverse device events, and feasibility of vagal nerve stimulation at the setting of acute stroke will be evaluated. The study will be performed in a multi-center fashion among stroke centers within TurkStrokeNet Network.
This is a phase II, randomized study of 120 adults age 18 or above who will prescribed 20mg daily Fluoxetine for 90 days following acute, ischemic stroke.
This is a single centre、single arm、open-label，to investigate the safety and efficacy of EPC transplantation in the brain
