DAWN Trial Results Demonstrate Dramatic Reduction in Disability From Stroke Up to 24 Hours of Onset

Results from the DAWN stroke trial provide compelling evidence that selected patients suffering a major ischemic stroke recovered significantly better with mechanical retrieval of the blood clot with medical therapy compared with medical therapy alone when initiated past the current guidelines of within 6 hours and up to 24 hours of the stroke.

Blacks, Hispanics Less Likely to See Neurologist as Outpatient

Black and Hispanic people are less likely to see a neurologist in the office or as an outpatient than white people in the United States, according to a study published in the May 17, 2017, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. Black people with neurologic conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and stroke were more likely to be cared for in the hospital emergency department and had more hospital stays than whites.
