A new study reports some types of gut bacteria can leverage the immune system to decrease the severity of ischemic stroke.
A new case study reveals a link between COVID-19 and clotting in blood vessels in the brain that results in an increased risk of ischemic stroke. Five of the six cases included in the study suffered an ischemic stroke within 8-24 days of the onset of coronavirus symptoms. Early use of anticoagulants might help reduce the risk of blood clotting and stroke in patients with COVID-19.

A new long-term study reveals people who followed diets that were high in plant-based food items and were lower in sugars had a 10% reduced risk of suffering from an ischemic stroke later in life.
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.
Researchers report that low blood and oxygen flow to the developing brain does not, as previously thought, cause an irreversible loss of brain cells, but rather disrupts the cells’ ability to fully mature.
Gabapentin, a medication commonly prescribed to control seizure activity, may enhance stroke recovery and restore fine motor function, a new study reports.
