The primary goal of the clinical trial is to test the effect of oral rivaroxaban plus aspirin in patients with recent stroke/ transient ischemic attack (TIA) caused by intracranial artery stenosis. Participants will be divided into 2 groups to receive either oral rivaroxaban plus aspirin or oral clopidogrel plus aspirin. The main question it aims to answer is whether the experimental group (oral rivaroxaban plus aspirin) is superior to the control group ( oral clopidogrel plus aspirin) to lower recurrent stroke/TIA or death in these patients during 1 year of follow-up.
To assess the Efficacy and Safety of Dengzhanxixin Injection in Patients With Acute Ischemic Stroke Receiving Reperfusion Therapy.
To evaluate the safety and tolerability of IxCellhUC-MSC-S as a single intravenous infusion in convalescent patients with ischemic stroke. To explore the efficacy of IxCellhUC-MSC-S as a single intravenous infusion in patients with convalescent ischemic stroke.
The study will collect data from aged 18 to 85 years with a diagnosis of acute stroke, who received thrombolytic treatment with a new agent, nonimmunogenic staphylokinase. Outcomes will be checked for safety and compared to the results of treatment with the other thrombolytic drug, alteplase.
The goal of this clinical trial is to evaluate the effect of evolocumab in combination with statin therapy (atorvastatin) in acute ischemic stroke (AIS).
Vagal Nerve Stimulation is a novel proven therapy for patients with chronic ischemic stroke. The primary objective of this registry is to assess the safety of vagal nerve stimulation for stroke recovery through monitoring the occurrence of serious adverse events associated with the surgical procedure or subsequent paired rehabilitation protocol. This registry will monitor patients undergoing VNS for stroke recovery in the Mount Sinai Health System and collect clinical and procedural details, objective outcomes, and patient-reported outcomes associated with vagal nerve stimulation for stroke recovery.
From the region around Brussels there are currently few data on how the post-stroke process take place and how satisfied the care providers are with it. For this reason, this survey is set up with the aim of examining four pillars: the epidemiology of stroke, communication between neurologists and GPs and satisfaction with it, secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease and control/treatment of the most common sequelae after stroke. In the latter two, the emphasis is on detection and treatment, and explicitly on whose task this is (neurologist versus GP), with the aim of verifying the mutual consensus on treatment and the subsequent detection of treatment shortcomings. This study will mainly consist of interviewing general practitioners and neurologists in the periphery of Brussels. This will be done by means of partly structured questionnaires, that will be send out to the medical professionals by contact with the central umbrella organisations of neurology in the hospitals and contact with the various general practitioners' practices (directly or through the multidisciplinary meetings per region). The questionnaires will be made up in google forms, as this programme allows efficient data processing, is eas-ily understandable for every participant and as no individual patient data will be processed.
With the steady development of catheter ablation, it has gradually become the main treatment of various arrhythmias. Antithrombotic and anticoagulant therapy after catheter ablation determines the occurrence of perioperative bleeding and ischemic events. However, the incidence, characteristics and short-term prognosis of secondary acute cerebrovascular events in patients with arrhythmia after catheter ablation have not been studied. Methods: This study was intended to retrospectively collect and analyze the case data and auxiliary examination results of patients with arrhythmia who underwent catheter ablation. To evaluate the incidence, clinical features and short-term prognosis of secondary acute ischemic and hemorrhagic cerebrovascular events in patients with arrhythmia after catheter ablation. In order to improve the quality of life of patients, reduce the secondary acute cerebrovascular complications in the hospital in patients with arrhythmia after catheter ablation, to provide evidence for promoting the clinical management of such patients, and to provide help for the maximum degree of prevention and control risk.
Extensive research is being conducted in search of neuroprotective agents for possible use in the acute phase of stroke and agents that can be used for neurorepair in later stages of stroke. Several trials have been conducted and are in progress using different pharmacological agents, but none of the studies involve the stimulation of ETB receptors to treat cerebral ischemic stroke. Sovateltide (IRL-1620, PMZ-1620) has been effective in animal models of cerebral ischemic stroke. Its safety and tolerability have been demonstrated in a human phase I study with 7 subjects. Clinical phase II and III results indicate that sovateltide is a novel, first-in-class, highly effective drug candidate for treating cerebral ischemic stroke. Safety and significant efficacy in improving the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS), Modified Rankin scale (mRS), and Barthel index (BI) obtained in phase II and III studies in patients with cerebral ischemic stroke in India are convincing and encouraged us to investigate its safety and efficacy in cerebral ischemic stroke patients in the United States. Therefore, we now plan to conduct a phase III clinical study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of sovateltide therapy along with standard of care in patients of acute ischemic stroke.
This is a single-arm post-market study of up to 150 participants, using up to 50 mobile therapists to conduct up to 36-hours at-home therapy. The study will assess at-home therapy implementation instead of an in-clinic therapy implementation for patients who are commercially implanted with the Vivistim System. Patients will be consented for eligibility if appropriate to be implanted with the Vivistim System per the indications for use (The MicroTransponder® Vivistim® Paired VNS™ System is intended to be used to stimulate the vagus nerve during rehabilitation therapy in order to reduce upper extremity motor deficits and improve motor function in chronic ischemic stroke patients with moderate to severe arm impairment.). Study participation includes receiving rehabilitation therapy paired with VNS, provided at the patient's home by a therapist, along with self-activated VNS. All subjects will be commercially implanted with the Vivistim System® after an ischemic stroke prior to Study treatment, although they may be consented prior to implant. It should be noted that the implant surgery is not part of the study.
