This study will investigate whether reducing blood pressure can stop bleeding in the brain after thrombolysis (a clot-busting treatment for stroke) and improve patient's outcomes.
Exploring the effects of lowering blood pressure and a lower dose of clot busting drug on stroke outcome
This study will show whether more intensive lowering of blood pressure (BP) in survivors of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is feasible, safe and effective in reducing brain injury. If successful, the study will pave the way for the design a larger definitive trial.
This project will use data that has been collected through previous research studies to investigate the relationship between blood pressure measured in the arm and leg, and the risk of stroke.
This research is focused on assessing the relationship between the variability of the blood flow through the blood vessels supplying the brain, and the risk of stroke in patients who have already had a stroke or “mini-stroke” (TIA) in the past.
