INNOVATIVE STROKE TREATMENT LEADS TO PATENT APPLICATIONS

Stroke is the third leading cause of death and disability in the United States, with one person dying every four minutes. Nearly 800,000 people have a stroke each year and about 87 percent are ischemic strokes, where blood flow to the brain is constrained or clogged. While there have been significant strides made in stroke research as well as major advances in stroke care, effective treatments are still insufficient and require a continued quest for new remedies. Current drugs designed for stroke intervention and treatment are based on their anti-oxidative properties or blockers of calcium channels or glutamate receptors. However, no clinically effective therapeutic intervention for stroke has yet been developed.
