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.
Two articles published from the Nottingham Fatigue After Stroke (NOTFAST) study shed light on having fatigue six months after having a stroke.
About 80% of strokes are caused by a blocked blood vessel. One third of these patients have a blockage of a large blood vessel in the neck or brain known as large artery occlusion stroke (LAOS).
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.
Published online (ahead of print in the journal Annals of Neurology), the results of a new study found that one year after arterial ischaemic stroke (AIS), the rate of death, recurrence of stroke, and neurological impairment was lower than reports in previous studies.
On December 5, 2014, Emma Patchick one of our Postgaduate Fellows, published a research paper online in the medical journal, Health Expectations.
