Abciximab (ReoPro) in Acute Ischemic Stroke "ReoPro"


Phase 2 Results


"There were no cases of major intracranial hemorrhage. Asymptomatic parenchymal hemorrhages were detected on post-study agent CT in 4 of 54 abciximab patients (7%) and in 1 of 20 placebo patients (5%). Six additional abciximab patients had asymptomatic hemorrhagic lesions detected by unscheduled brain imaging during their follow-up period. At 3 months, there was a trend toward a higher rate of minimal residual disability (Barthel Index > or =95 or modified Rankin scale < or =1) among abciximab patients compared with those who received placebo."
