Poster Information
Abstract: Current treatments for stroke focus on quick access to facilities that offer thrombolytic and/or interventional radiology. New methods of potential treatments of chronic stroke offer some hope that disability may be reduced for patients who have no access to these facilities.
The poster highlights a few of these potential treatments.
Summary: The poster is a summary of potential therapies for chronic stroke.References: 1. Xu, W., Zheng, J., Gao, L., Li, T., Zhang, J. and Shao, A. (2017). Neuroprotective Effects of Stem Cells in Ischemic Stroke. Stem Cells International, 2017, pp.1-7.
