Phase 1/2 Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Stroke is one of the three leading causes of human death, and a major cause of adult disability. Our pre-clinical studies confirmed that ischemic preconditioning can prevent cerebral infarction. Animal studies confirmed that ischemic postconditioning can reduce infarct size of cerebral infarction. Investigators hypothesized that postconditioning would reduce infarct volume of ischemic stroke patients.
