Hemorrhagic stroke which is a form of stroke that affects 20% of all stroke patients is a devastating condition for which new treatments must be developed. Current treatment methods are quite insufficient to reduce long term morbidity and high mortality rate, up to 50%, associated with bleeding into critical brain structures, into ventricular spaces and within the subarachnoid space. Brain hemorrhage stroke occurs in approximately 20% of all patients with a stroke There are two main categories of hemorrhagic stroke, intracranial hemorrhage including epidural hematoma, subdural hematoma and subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), and intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) including intraparenchymal hemorrhage (IPH) and intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH). As a consequence of brain hemorrhage, enzymes involved in blood clotting and clot lysis are produced however, many of them have potential toxicities.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
