Adults with stroke-related disability spend more time sedentary than adults without stroke-related disability, which places them at risk for poor cardiovascular health outcomes. Few interventions are designed to reduce post-stroke sedentary time. The purpose of this research is to test whether the teleABLE (Activating Behavior for Lasting Engagement) Intervention is feasible and acceptable to adults within the first 12 months post-stroke. The hypothesis is that teleABLE can be feasibly delivered using videoconferencing within the first 12 months post-stroke. 10 participants will complete assessments and activity monitoring (activPAL micro3) at 0 (baseline) and 8 (post-intervention)-weeks. Participants will complete 12 sessions of the teleABLE intervention. Findings from this study will be used to guide the intervention protocol in the planned next phase of this research.
This Phase 1b multiple center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study is a dose escalation trial evaluating the safety, tolerability, PK characteristics and efficacy of SY-007 after injection in acute ischemicstroke patients. The immunogenicity of SY-007 will be evaluated and this study will provide the recommended dosage for subsequent clinical trials.
The aim of this trial is to investigate whether endovascular treatment can improve the 90-day functional outcome of acute large vessel occlusion in the posterior circulation.
Application of Virtual Reality therapy and occupational therapy versus and standard physiotherapy and occupational therapy to patients with post-stroke sequelae, using specifical assessment tools, standard physiotherapy and occupational therapy programs.
CASTRO1 is a study to investigate the reduction of C-reactive protein (CRP) by therapeutic apheresis (CRP-apheresis) in patients after primary treatment of ischemic stroke. The term therapeutic apheresis commonly refers to medical procedures, where pathogenic constituents are being removed from the circulating blood. Elimination is performed by adsorbers outside the body in an extracorporeal circulation. For removal of the pathogenic substances the plasma is separated from the blood (circulation) to pass the adsorber. The purified plasma is merged with the solid blood components thereafter and returned to the patient. The adsorber "PentraSorb® CRP" used for CRP apheresis is CE-certified. It is designated to the selective depletion of C-reactive protein from human blood.
This study investigates if electroencephalography (EEG) neurofeedback training is more beneficial than sham feedback training for the improvement of communication, anxiety, and sleep quality in individuals with aphasia. Half of the participants will receive active EEG neurofeedback sessions first, followed by sham feedback sessions in a crossover design. The other half of participants will undergo sham feedback sessions first, followed by active neurofeedback.
The aim of this study is to validate the G-walk for several gait parameters, tested against a gold standard three dimensional camera system. This research will inform researchers and practitioners as to whether the G-Walk is a suitable and valid tool to easily assess walking ability in people with chronic stroke.
ENCHANTED2 is an international, multicenter, prospective, randomised, open, blinded end-point assessed (PROBE) trial, to assess different approaches to manage blood pressure (BP) in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients who have undergone mechanical thrombectomy (MT). There are two nested substudies evaluating different approaches to secondary prevention in this high-risk stroke population.
Stroke and silent cerebral infarction are a real risk with thoracic enodvascular aortic repair (TEVAR). The investigator propose to prospectively observational study with enrolment of all patients undergoing TEVAR for thoracic and thoracoabdominal conditions including aneurysmal degeneration, Type B dissection and acute aortic syndromes over a 24 month period, equating to a minimum of 20-30 patients per year. Patients undergoing juxtra-renal and infra-renal aortic stenting will form a control group.
This study proposes to use transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), a technique by which a very small electrical current (2 mA) is applied to the scalp, along side speech therapy in patients with subacute stroke and aphasia in order to enhance language recovery. Aphasic patients in an inpatient neurorehabilitation facility who have experienced a stroke between one week and three months prior to enrollment will be invited to participate. Participants will receive either real or sham tDCS to the left hemisphere of the brain for a minimum of 5 consecutive sessions to up-to a max of 10 sessions depending on the length of their rehab stay . Stimulation will be paired with with the patient's normal speech therapy schedule. Participant's language skills will be assessed at baseline and immediately after the last session of therapy in order to determine whether tDCS is associated with either transient or persistent improvement in language.
