Northwestern Medicine FASTEST Community Input Session for Stroke Clinical Trial
A free and informative Zoom Seminar with Dr. Harish Shownkeen MD from Northwestern Medicine on Wednesday, February 17 from Noon – 1:00 PM.
FASTEST is a research study involving patients who have had bleeding in the brain also called intracerebral hemorrhage or ICH. ICH occurs because a weakened blood vessel in the brain breaks and the bleeding accumulates in the brain. Most of this bleeding occurs within a few hours of onset of symptoms. The brain injury from ICH is usually very severe and over 40% of people with ICH are dead within a month and only 20% can independently care for themselves at 6 months. There is currently no treatment for ICH that is scientifically proven to improve outcome.
