Is it possible to catch a stroke in surgery? A study exploring how damaging proteins cause bleeding in the brain

University College London (UCL)
Status
Active
Summary

Dr Banerjee aims to set up three studies to improve our understanding of how damaging proteins in the brain may increase the risk of stroke. This can lead the way for researchers to find out how we can help more people avoid damage to their brain caused by these proteins.

Searching for medicines that can reduce damage after a bleed in the brain

University of Manchester
Status
Closed
Summary

This research will investigate 2000 drugs that are already known to be safe for use in humans to see if they could help reduce the amount of damage to the brain which an intracerebral haemorrhage (a type of stroke caused by a bleed in the brain) causes.

Small Vessel Disease - Spotlight on Symptoms: using brain scans to find out which symptoms are linked to small vessel disease

University of Edinburgh
Status
Active
Summary

This project is part of a larger on-going study into Small Vessel Disease (SVD) after stroke. It will allow the researchers to invite some of the participants in this project back for more frequent brain scans and tests to help them to understand more about SVD after stroke.

Developing new models to better understand and allow testing of new therapies for small vessel disease and vascular dementia

University of Edinburgh
Status
Active
Summary

Small Vessel Disease (SVD) is a condition that affects the small blood vessels in the brain, and it can lead to stroke and dementia. This research programme hopes to increase our understanding of how SVD develops, leading to new ways to investigate SVD and test drugs which may help treat it.
