NIH study uses MRI scans to screen stroke patients for acute treatment within the first critical 60 minutes

NIH-funded study finds patients treated up to 16 hours after stroke showed positive outcomes

This NIH workshop is focused on the discovery and validation of biomarkers and endpoints that will ultimately facilitate the development of safer therapies for people with pain.

Videocast Information

In observance of National Stroke Awareness Month, NINDS, Million Hearts, and Kaiser Permanente are co-hosting a Twitter chat to discuss stroke risk factors, the importance of keeping your brain healthy, and the latest stroke research. #StrokeTalk will take place Tuesday, May 9, from 1-2 p.m. ET and will be led by CNN Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta. In addition, these medical experts will be on hand to answer questions:

NIH-funded global study suggests novel approach for preventing repeated cardiovascular events

NIH-funded study suggests a change in diet could mitigate increased risk for stroke

Findings suggest potential for brain implants to treat stroke patients

Preliminary results suggest strokes also affect the eye

Research into curious bright spots in the eyes on stroke patients’ brain images could one day alter the way these individuals are assessed and treated. A team of scientists at the National Institutes of Health found that a chemical routinely given to stroke patients undergoing brain scans can leak into their eyes, highlighting those areas and potentially providing insight into their strokes. The study was published in Neurology.
