An experimental drug that reduces brain damage and improves motor skills among stroke-afflicted rodents when given with federally approved clot-busting therapy has been created.
New research would help emergency care workers and battlefield medics stabilize blood flow in the brains of traumatic injury victims. Researchers developed a nanoparticle-based antioxidant that quickly quenches free radicals that interfere with regulation of the brain’s vascular system.
Researchers suggest measuring blood flow in the brain could be an easy and noninvasive way to predict hemorrhage or stroke in children receiving cardiac or respiratory support though ECMO technique.
A long term population based study helps shed light on those most at risk for SAH.
