The European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC) 2017 is currently on from 16-18 May in Prague, Czech Republic.
The second day of ESOC included focused on the global perspectives on stroke, including the link between poverty and stroke, understanding cerebral small vessel diseases (SVDs) which can lead to vascular dementia, and stroke in young people.
In this study, human stem cells will be generated from a piece of skin donated by patients with CADASIL. This could create new treatments for CADASIL, and allow us to better understand the way that gene mutation causes disease.
Can using a tissue sample from the buttock help us understand the main genetic cause of stroke?
