ARCADIA

  • Opened to enrollment since November 2018
  • Overview: ARCADIA is a multicenter, biomarker-driven, randomized, double-blind, active-control, Phase III clinical trial of apixaban versus aspirin in patients who have evidence of atrial cardiopathy and a recent stroke of unknown cause. Eleven hundred subjects will be recruited at up to 200 sites in the NIH StrokeNET consortium. Subjects will be followed for a minimum of 1.5 years and a maximum of four years for the primary efficacy outcome of recurrent stroke and the primary safety outcomes of symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage and major hemorrhage other than intracranial hemorrhage.

Sleep SMART

  • Open to enrollment: June 2019
  • Overview: Investigator-initiated, Phase III multicenter, prospective randomized open-, blinded-endpoint (PROBE) controlled trial to test whether treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with continuous positive airway pressure is effective for secondary prevention and recovery after stroke.

ARCADIA-CSI

  • Open to enrollment: approximately November 2019
  • Overview: Patients randomized in ARCADIA will be eligible for ARCADIA-CSI if they can undergo cognitive testing (English speakers with score <2 on the NIHSS language item) and have no MRI contraindications. Of the 1,100 patients who will be randomized in ARCADIA, we will enroll 500 in ARCADIA-CSI. ARCADIA-CSI subjects will undergo their routine ARCADIA study visits plus: 1) baseline and annual neuropsychological testing; 2) a MRI brain scan at enrollment if not already obtained as part of routine care; and 3) a MRI at their final ARCADIA study visit.

MOST

  • Open to enrollment: approximately November 2019
  • Overview: The primary efficacy objective of the MOST trial is to determine if argatroban (100μg/kg bolus followed by 3μg/kg per minute for 12 hours) or eptifibatide (135μg/kg bolus followed by 0.75μg/kg/min infusion for two hours) results in improved 90-day modified Rankin scores (mRS) as compared with placebo in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients treated with 0.9mg/kg IV rt-PA within three hours of symptom onset.

I-ACQUIRE

  • Open to enrollment: approximately December 2019
  • Overview: This is a phase III clinical trial to compare the efficacy of two dosages of a new infant rehabilitation protocol - I-ACQUIRE - to usual and customary forms of infant rehabilitation in infants who experienced Perinatal Arterial Stroke (PAS). Ages eligible for study: 8-36 months

ASPIRE

  • Open to enrollment: approximately March 2020
  • Overview: ASPIRE is a randomized, double-blinded, Phase III clinical trial designed to test the efficacy and safety of apixaban, compared with aspirin, in patients with a recent intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and high-risk non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF). Seven hundred patients will be recruited at sites coordinated through the NIH/NINDS StrokeNET. Participants will be followed for outcomes over a median of 24 months (12 months minimum, 36 months maximum). Efficacy outcomes are stroke or death (primary) and change in modified Rankin Scale score (secondary). Tertiary outcomes include change in cognition and quality of life, major hemorrhage, myocardial infarction, venous thromboembolism, systemic embolism, and individual components of the primary outcome.

SATURN

  • Open to enrollment
  • Overview: This is a multicenter, pragmatic, prospective, randomized, open-label, and blinded endpoint assessment (PROBE) clinical trial. A total of 1,456 patients presenting within seven days of a spontaneous lobar ICH while taking statins will be randomized to one of two treatment strategies: discontinuation vs. continuation (restarting) of statin therapy (using the same agent and dose that they were using at ICH onset). Randomization will take into account: clinical site, statin dose and indication (primary vs. secondary prevention), current use and intent-to-use oral anticoagulants (OAC) and/or antiplatelets in the long-term post-ICH, and severity of ICH upon presentation as assessed by baseline ICH volume. Participating subjects will undergo baseline testing for APOE genotype and will be followed for 24 months to assess for the occurrence of recurrent symptomatic ICH or MACCE during the follow-up period.

CAPTIVA

  • Open to enrollment: September 2022
  • Overview: CAPTIVA is a two-stage Phase III trial randomizing subjects with stroke attributed to 70-99% intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (sICAS) to 12 months treatment of:
  1. ticagrelor (180 mg loading dose, then 90mg twice daily) + aspirin 81 mg / day, or…
  2. low dose rivaroxaban (2.5mg twice daily) + aspirin 81 mg / day, or…
  3. clopidogrel (600mg loading dose, then 75 mg daily) + aspirin 81 mg/day.
  4. All subjects will also receive intensive risk factor management per the SAMMPRIS protocol and will undergo blinded genetic testing for CYP2C19 loss of carrier status. Subjects will be seen in person at 30 days, four months, eight months and at close out at 12 months. The primary goal of the trial is to determine if the experimental arm(s) (rivaroxaban or ticagrelor or both) are superior to the clopidogrel arm for lowering the one-year rate of the primary endpoint (ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), or vascular death).
