CADASIL is one of the most common genetic causes of stroke and dementia. Currently, there is no treatment for CADASIL. In this study, human stem cells will be generated from a piece of skin donated by patients with CADASIL. From these stem cells, smooth muscle cells (SMCs) will be generated in a tissue culture dish in the lab.
A research project to find out if a ‘polypill’ can help reduce the chance that people who have had a stroke will have a heart attack or another stroke.
Could an ARNI-based rehabilitation approach benefit stroke survivors?
Scientists in Sweden, from Chalmers University of Technology, Sahlgrenska Academy and Sahlgrenska University Hospital, are developing a wearable cap to diagnose whether a clot or a bleed has happened in the brain of someone who has had a stroke.
How should we best prevent narrowed neck arteries causing stroke?
On 12 February 2015, at the International Stroke Conference (ISC 2015) in Nashville, USA, the findings of a Stroke Association-funded study were presented, called CADISS (Cervical Artery Dissection In Stroke Study).
Thousands of lives a year could be changed thanks to a pilot research study by Imperial College which involves injecting a patient's stem cells into their brain.
This research aims to improve outcomes for Intracerebral Haemorrhage (ICH) patients by developing new emergency treatments to reduce swelling in the brain after ICH, and improving the care that patients receive.
The aim of this study is to develop a fatigue management programme to improve stroke survivors' knowledge of post stroke fatigue (PSF) and to identify ways of managing it.
