Doctors have more time than thought to treat stroke patients, study suggests

June 9, 2019

In a CNN article, “Doctors have more time than thought to treat stroke patients, study suggests,” by Jacqueline Howard explains how an 18-year-old, yet another young person, being a victim of stroke survived the incident. The patient however, does have Dandy-walker syndrome, a condition where fluid builds up in a section of the brain—on procedure that lead to a stroke. The patient became a part of the rehabilitation group, Beyond Therapy, that helps stroke victims reclaim their mobility again through various cardio routines. The articles highlights that lack of oxygen to the brain is considered to be damage or a brain injury. Would a drug like BXT25 help avoid a situation as such? Even with patients with pre-existing conditions, could this drug deliver oxygen to the brain so rehabilitation could be avoided overall?
