Stroke & Neurosurgery Clinical Trials

Current Clinical Trials

Some stroke and neurosurgery trials conducted at University Hospitals enroll patients who are in the acute stage of their disease or injury. This means that patients are enrolled while they are in the emergency room, intensive care unit, or operating room. You can read about some of these trials below and at clinicaltrials.gov.


StrokeNet is a new way of operating and conducting collaborative clinical National Institutes of Health (NIH) trials across the country. Cleveland has been chosen as a Regional Coordinating Center, which is comprised of the major healthcare institutions in the regions to conduct NIH stroke and neurology research. What makes this unique is that all institutions and the corresponding satellite hospitals will operate and conduct clinical research trials under one financial budget and contract and utilize one central Institutional Review Board (IRB). This will allow for us to maximize efficiencies in the development, promotion and conduct of multisite exploratory phase I, II and confirmatory phase III clinical trials in stroke prevention, treatment and recovery that are funded by NIH.
