Yale’s Department of Neurology is one of seven medical institutions awarded $4 million from the National Institutes of Health to assess acute ischemic stroke treatments in rodent models. As a part of the Stroke Preclinical Assessment Network (SPAN), participating institutions will work together to increase the rigor surrounding testing for ischemic brain injury, taking a look at six neuroprotective therapies to improve outcomes after stroke.

Recently the National Institutes of Health called on researchers to make the standards and practices for conducting early stage, or preclinical, medical research on animals more like those used for clinical trials. To facilitate this change, NIH will fund a nationwide preclinical trial platform designed to systematically and efficiently test novel treatments for acute ischemic stroke in rodents. Seven labs will work together, as part of the Stroke Preclinical Assessment Network (SPAN), to employ rigorous, clinical research practices, like randomization and blinding, while assessing the effectiveness of six potential neuroprotective therapies in reducing ischemic brain injury. The funding estimate for the network is $4 million over three years.
