New drug could help stroke patients

4th November 2010

The Stroke Association has welcomed a study that shows that blocking a molecule which stops brain cells working properly after a stroke could help people recover better but has warned that further research is needed to discover if it could be effective on humans.

Writing in the journal Nature, scientists from the University of California in Los Angeles, said doing this in mice helped reverse the effects of a stroke and that treatment based on this approach could be given days later, while conventional treatments need far quicker action.
