Observation index.
1. General condition; the physical and chemical inspection related;
2. Efficacy check : mRS, BI, NIHSS;
3. Safety check: blood routine, urine routine, stool OB, liver function(ALT、AST), renal function (BUN, Cr), coagulation four indices(PT、APTT、TT、FIB), electrocardiogram.
Efficacy evaluation. 1. The main efficacy index: a. Percentage comparisons of two group patients of modified Rankin 0-2 grades on the 90th day.
Statistical analysis technique.
- Statistical analysis using SAS 9.2 system, all the statistical test adopted bilateral inspection, P value less than or equal to 0.05 will be considered a statistically significant difference.
