Clinical Trial Summary

Background: Stroke is a leading cause of mortality and disability globally, with acute ischemic strokes(AIS) due to Large Vessel Occlusion (LVO) presenting significant treatment challenges. Mechanical thrombectomy (MT) has emerged as an effective intervention for AIS within an 8-hour window from symptom onset. However, the potential to extend this window up to 24 hours for select patients could revolutionize outcomes for those arriving late at comprehensive stroke centers. This study investigates the efficacy and safety of Cerebrolysin as an adjunct therapy to MT in extended time window and improving patient recovery. Methods: We conducted a multi-center, prospective, randomized study within the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital system in Taiwan, targeting 100 AIS patients eligible for MT beyond the traditional 8-hour window. Participants were randomized to receive either standard care or Cerebrolysin post-MT, initiated within 24 hours of stroke onset and continued for 14 days. The study assessed neurological, neuropsychological, and biomarker outcomes at multiple time points post-stroke to evaluate the effects of Cerebrolysin on recovery. Results: The primary outcome will measure the proportion of patients achieving favorable functional outcomes (modified Rankin Scale 0-2) at 90 days. Secondary outcomes include the impact of Cerebrolysin on secondary hemorrhagic transformation, brain edema, mortality rates, and quality of life. The study aims to provide comprehensive data on the benefits of adding Cerebrolysin to the standard post-MT care, focusing on its potential to protect against reperfusion injuries and maintain blood-brain barrier integrity. Conclusion: By evaluating the role of Cerebrolysin in conjunction with MT, this study aims to extend the therapeutic window for AIS treatment, offering hope for improved outcomes for patients who would otherwise be ineligible for current reperfusion therapies. The findings may pave the way for new guidelines in stroke management, emphasizing the importance of integrated care approaches in enhancing patient recovery.
