This study will determine if NXY-059 will reduce functional disability from an acute stroke. The study is designed to look at both overall recovery and recovery of motor function, for example muscle strength and coordination.

Condition Intervention Phase
Cerebral Stroke Ischemic Attack, Transient Drug: NXY-059 Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: SAINT I (Stroke - Acute Ischemic - NXY Treatment) A Double Blind, Randomized, Placebo Controlled, Parallel Group, Multicenter, Phase IIb/III Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Intravenous NXY-059 in Acute Ischemic Stroke.
