In this study, we are testing the theory that by treating BP more intensively we will delay progression of the disease. We will also use state-of-the-art MRI imaging techniques to look at the mechanisms by which any beneficial effect of BP occurs.
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to enable activation of the damaged part of the brain to be more active in the recovery period after a stroke
Can an anti-inflammatory drug (IL-1Ra) given into the skin reduce damaging inflammation in the brain and body after stroke compared to a dummy-drug?
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by disease or injury. This causes the structure of the brain to change, leading to the loss of some brain cells.
You can now start the Stroke Association’s Stroke Awareness and Acquired Brain Injury course. Distance learning students can find all the materials they need here.
We're excited to annouce our recent partnership with Game of Thrones actor Emilia Clarke and her charity SameYou. Newly founded SameYou aims to transform recovery care for young adults following hospital treatment for brain injury and stroke.
Inflammation is an important defence mechanism that the body uses in response to injury or infection. However, it can also be highly damaging to the brain directly after stroke. This study will investigate whether adult stem cells can be transformed and used to reduce inflammation in the brain after stroke, and promote recovey.
Childhood stroke can affect the whole family. The Stroke Association is here to support you as much as we can. We can provide resources and information related to peer support, stroke, brain injury and hemiplegia organisations, education, advocacy, info on related conditions, as well as handbooks, storybooks, and videos.
No two strokes are the same. How well you recover and how long it takes is different for everyone, but making sure that you receive treatment as quickly as possible will give you the best chance of making a good recovery.
