International PFO Consortium

Background The prevalence of patent foramen ovale (PFO) is about 25% in the general population and approximately 40% in patients who have ischemic stroke of unknown cause (cryptogenic stroke). Given the large number of asymptomatic patients, no primary prevention is currently recommended. On the contrary, secondary prevention is very important. ...

Phase N/A

Incidence of Acute Cerebrovascular Events Using Either Minimized or Standard Cardiopulmonary Bypass Circuit

Coronary artery bypass grafting with extracorporal circulation is established as the golden standard. The conventional cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) system is associated with inflammatory reaction, hemolysis, hemodilution an disturbances of the blood coagulation system. Also it's well known that neurological disturbances caused by embolic material and air bubbles are potential risks ...

Melodic-Intonation-Therapy and Speech-Repetition-Therapy for Patients With Non-fluent Aphasia

One of the few accepted treatments for severe non-fluent aphasia is Melodic Intonation Therapy (MIT). Inspired by the common clinical observation that patients can actually sing the lyrics of a song better than they can speak the same words, MIT emphasizes the prosody of speech through the use of slow, ...

A Study to Assess the Effectiveness and Safety of Rivaroxaban in Reducing the Risk of Death Myocardial Infarction or Stroke in Participants With Heart Failure and Coronary Artery Disease Following an Episode of Decompensated Heart Failure

This is a randomized (the study medication is assigned by chance), double-blind (neither physician nor participant knows the identity of the assigned treatment), parallel group (each participant group receives different treatments simultaneously), event driven (the study duration is determined by the time taken for a specific number of events to ...

Phase

Natural History of Stroke: Cause and Development

OBJECTIVE: This is a natural history/disease pathogenesis protocol for evaluation of patients with or at risk for acute stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), or other disturbances of cerebrovascular circulation. The purpose of this protocol is to generate natural history data to serve as the basis for future hypothesis-driven protocols as ...

Phase N/A

Mindful Hearts Study

Evidence demonstrates that chronic stress doubles the risk of myocardial infarction and contributes to proinflammatory processes implicated in coronary artery disease and stroke. Veterans who have experienced combat are at greater risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) compared to noncombat Veterans and non-Veterans. However, previous research has focused primarily on male ...

Phase N/A

Psychoeducation for Transient Ischaemic Attack and Minor Stroke

Participants will complete measures at baseline and then randomly allocated to receive the intervention or usual care. The intervention group will receive a group psychoeducational intervention (designed in Phase 1: Qualitative study) in addition to self-help leaflets and usual care. It is anticipated that the intervention will be offered in ...

Phase N/A

Neuroprotective Effect of Autologous Cord Blood Combined With Therapeutic Hypothermia Following Neonatal Encephalopathy

The primary aim of this study is to determine the neuroprotective effect of intravenous administration of autologous cord blood in neonates with severe encephalopathy (hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy or cerebral infarction). It is hypothesized that the administration of autologous cord blood will be safe and well tolerated in neonates with severe ...

Phase

Preemie Hypothermia for Neonatal Encephalopathy

Most clinical studies of neonatal encephalopathy (NE) and potential interventions have focused on infants ≥36 weeks GA. Although many interventions have been suggested and assessed for prevention or palliation of NE, the only one currently supported by rigorous clinical evidence to improve outcome in human newborns has been hypothermia implemented ...

Phase

RESTORE-IT-Study of Rifalazil in Chlamydia Pneumoniae Seropositive Patients With a History of Atherosclerotic Disease

To evaluate the effect of treatment with rifalazil versus placebo taken once weekly for 12 weeks on carotid atherosclerotic disease progression in patients who test positive for Chlamydia pneumoniae. Measurements of the carotid artery wall (intima-media thickness) and plaque characteristics will be evaluated with high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ...
