ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a randomized trail performed to study the treatment procedures for patients suffering from acute ischemic stroke. This study was presented at the 2013 International Stroke Conference and showed that if the patients were treated with tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) and eptifibatide drugs within three hours of suffering stroke the damage caused is reduced. This treatment lowers the rate of symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage at 36 hours.
