PRESS RELEASE - Issued by University of Leicester Press Office on Tuesday 10 May
University of Leicester involved in the international ENCHANTED trial to improve survival rates of stroke victims. Stroke Association funds UK arm of the trial.
As part of our research programme, we fund exceptional candidates from stroke professional backgrounds to our prestigious Postgraduate and Postdoctoral Fellowship positions. Meet our new fellows for 2017.
MR CLEAN is a Dutch trial that investigated treatment of a severe form of ischaemic stroke (blockage type stroke) with thrombolysis alone (dissolving a clot with clot-busting drugs), versus treatment with both thrombolysis.
New research review suggests that post-stroke fatigue is a symptom independent of depression, pain and sleep problems, and may depend on the 'excitability' of the movement part of the brain.
The Stroke Association funded a feasibility study into improving the treatment of a condition called 'drop foot', which was recently published in the medical journal, Disability & Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology.
Two new research studies were published today, supporting the use of thrombectomy (mechanical retrieval of clots in the brain) for the treatment of large ischaemic strokes.
On February 11, at the International Stroke Conference (ISC 2015 in Nashville, USA) the latest findings were released from four, large studies investigating the effect of treating patients with mechanical clot retrieval.
