Understanding and treating biological changes after a bleed in the brain
This research on Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) will use zebrafish models so that we can gain a better understanding of how cells of the brain respond to the bleeding.
CHALLENGE-ICH: Preventing clotting strokes after intracerebral haemorrhage
Many people who have bleeding strokes go on to have clotting strokes as well. Dr Jatinder Minhas wants to understand why that's happening and what it might mean for how we treat bleeding strokes.
New research suggests brain scans could help predict brain bleed risk in patients on anticoagulant drugs.
The CROMIS-2 study investigated whether signs of small brain bleeds on routine brain scans can help us understand which ischaemic stroke patients with atrial fibrillation are at increased risk of a bleed in the brain when on anticoagulant ‘blood thinning’ drugs.
Reducing Blood Pressure to Prevent Bleeding Complications and Improve Outcome Following Clot-busting Treatment for Ischaemic Stroke
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.
New research suggests that a drug used to treat bleeding could benefit some stroke patients
Led by the University of Nottingham, a new international study investigated whether patients with a spontaneous bleed in the brain (intracerebral haemorrhage) could benefit from this drug, if delivered as an emergency treatment. An intracerebral haemorrhage is a type of stroke.
PROHIBIT-ICH: Protecting the brain after a bleed with home monitored blood pressure control
Professor David Werring and the team are using home blood pressure measuring kits to investigate whether quickly lowering blood pressure after a bleeding stroke can help stroke survivors keep an eye on their blood pressure and prevent future damage to the brain.
Searching for medicines that can reduce damage after a bleed in the brain
This research will investigate 2000 drugs that are already known to be safe for use in humans to see if they could help reduce the amount of damage to the brain which an intracerebral haemorrhage (a type of stroke caused by a bleed in the brain) causes.
Can a new treatment package improve survival and life after stroke caused by a bleed in the brain?
This research will find out if a new package of emergency treatments for stroke caused by bleeding in the brain, called the ‘ABC bundle’ can be used in hospitals across the UK.
What is the impact of damaged thinking ability caused by a spontaneous bleed in the brain?
