Swedish Researchers Find Way to Reverse Brain Damage From StrokesFebruary 17, 2011 0 Comments
In an amazing breakthrough, brain researchers at Lund University led by Tadeuz Wieloch have discovered a substance that reverses at least some brain damage caused by strokes. Previously, only 10% of stroke victims are able to receive anti-clotting medication in time to prevent permanent brain damage. This new research has opened up the possibility for treating stroke victims two whole days after the attack. Their new substance stimulates the brain's own ability to regenerate.
This project reflects the most recent culmination of 15 years of research and has already found its way into clinical human trials in Japan.
