A panel of independent experts has decided that alteplase, a clot-busting drug often used to treat strokes is safe and effective under current guidelines.
Does fluoxetine improve recovery after stroke? Start-up phase for a large trial
Stroke Association/BHF Joint Programme Grant: Can a drug commonly used for gout improve recovery and prevention of further stroke for stroke survivors?
In stroke survivors, does the clinical effectiveness of 6 months treatment with fluoxetine depend upon its effects on synaptic plasticity in the brain? Can a drug used for depression help stroke recovery by changing connections between brain cells?

Exploring the effects of lowering blood pressure and a lower dose of clot busting drug on stroke outcome
This study will investigate whether early initiation of direct anticoagulant drugs will be as safe as later initiation in stroke patients with an abnormal heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation). It will also investigate whether early initation could lead to fewer recurrent strokes.
