    Background: Clopidogrel has largely replaced ticlopidine in antiplatelet therapy after coronary artery stenting because of the higher risk of blood dyscrasias with the latter agent. However, haemorrhage in this setting is not a rare event. We aimed to investigate by meta-analysis the risk of...

    The common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus), a New World monkey, has recently been used as a model of focal cerebral ischaemia. Here, we sought to develop a stroke model in this species using an intraluminal approach to occlude the middle cerebral artery (MCA). This technically simple procedure...
