Study of Drug Therapy to Prevent Stroke from Happening Again

Description

Seeking Ischemic (caused by reduced blood flow by narrowed or blocked arteries) stroke survivors aged 45 and older for a study of an investigational therapy using anticoagulant drugs (aspirin or apixiaban) for the prevention of another stroke

Overview

We are studying whether an investigational therapy using anticoagulant drugs (aspirin or apixiaban) helps prevent another stroke in people who have had a stroke because of narrowed or blocked blood flow to the brain. We will collect data on the safety and effectiveness of this investigational therapy to see if the anticoagulant drugs work better or worse the more narrowed or blocked the arteries are in people's brains.

What we're hoping for

We are hoping to prevent another stroke in people who have had an ischemic stroke (stroke caused by blood flow to the brain reduced or cut off by narrowed arteries) with an investigational therapy.
