The European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC) 2018 is currently on from 16-18 May in Gothenburg, Sweden. The first day of ESOC included some truly inspiring scientific sessions, including the WAKE-UP trial, RIGHT-2 trial and CROMIS-2 trials.
Published in the European Journal of Emergency Medicine (EJEM), a new review of the existing research sheds light on how frequently patients with a stroke mimic condition present for emergency care as having a stroke.
Presented today at the European Stroke Organisation Conference in Gothenburg, the results of the international WAKE-UP trial suggest that thousands of people who wake up with a stroke each year in the UK could now benefit from life-changing thrombolysis treatment.
How we take part in EU funded research, details of current projects and how you can join us.

The International Stroke Conference (ISC) 2018 took place in Los Angeles (24-26 January).
The ISC is the world's largest meeting dedicated to the science and treatment of stroke and its effects. Check out some of the highlights from 2018.
Inflammation is an important defence mechanism that the body uses in response to injury or infection. However, it can also be highly damaging to the brain directly after stroke. This study will investigate whether adult stem cells can be transformed and used to reduce inflammation in the brain after stroke, and promote recovey.
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.
Even making small changes to your eating habits can make a difference to your overall health, particularly if you have been told that you are at risk of having a stroke or TIA.
