Anyone who has had a stroke or been at the side of a loved one on the long road to stroke recovery knows how slow and frustrating progress can be.
Current stroke treatments are limited in what they can offer - sometimes, improvement can stop altogether and people are left with what appears to be permanent disabilities.
What if there was a treatment that could reverse the effects of stroke, even years later?
At the CGM Research Trust, we are committed to helping to find treatments for some of the most difficult conditions facing modern medicine, including Stroke. We hope that one day, stroke recovery will be faster, easier and more complete - but we need to trial new medications to help this happen.
If you, or somebody you know, are interested in taking part in a clinical trial for stroke recovery, register here to receive updates and our CGM Research Trust newsletter, call us on 03 365 6777, or contact us.
Have you had a stroke between 1 and 15 years ago?
Were you between the ages of 18 and 65 At the time of your stroke?
Do you still have a moderate to severe disability following your stroke?
If you have answered YES to the questions above, you may be eligible to be part of a new trial being held at 40 Stewart Street, Christchurch. This trial is looking at whether a drug called Etanercept (which is commonly used to treat other illnesses) is effective in helping relieve some symptoms of stroke.
