Clinical stroke research is critical if we are to devise strategies to prevent and treat this disabling disease.
This research may take the form of a clinical trial, where patients with or at risk for strokes
are asked to try a new therapy. Other types of studies follow patients over time, possibly monitoring
changes in blood pressure, weight, or blood tests while looking for evidence of any new stroke
Participation in research is always completely voluntary. Patients who decline entry into a study are not discriminated against. Before joining a research study, you will be given full disclosure of the study rationale, its source of support, and the risks/benefits to you. All costs incurred as a result of participation in the study, such as medications, laboratory tests, and doctor visits, are paid for by the study.
We have compiled a listing of all active stroke research with information pertaining to the study goals, entry criteria, and individuals to contact if you or one of your patient's is interested in participating. You can focus on stroke prevention, neuroimaging, acute stroke treatment, or stroke recovery studies. In addition, we have included a glossary of clinical terminology you may encounter in reading about the various clinical research studies ongoing at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
