The investigators will evaluate the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale/Score (NIHSS)in patients with stroke, and then give Minocycline 100mg po every 12 hours or placebo for five days, then perform periodic evaluations to determine the status and degree of neurological sequelae developed.

Condition Intervention Phase
Brain Ischemia
Drug: Minocicline
Drug: Placebo
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Effect of Minocicline Use in Less Neurologic Sequels in Patients With Stroke

Further study details as provided by Hospital Universitario Hernando Moncaleano Perdomo:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the efficacy of minocycline in reducing neurological sequelae in patients with stroke [ Time Frame: one year ]
    The researchers evaluated the neurological condition of paralysis, aphasia,and level of consciousness by NIHSS score for each patient with stroke and proceeded to give minocycline or placebo. Then, the assessment was repeated after five and thirty days post treatment to determine whether their neurological sequelae had diminushed.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Identify the side effects of the intervention administered during the treatment time and 30 days later. [ Time Frame: one year ]

Estimated Enrollment: 134
Study Start Date: October 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2013
Primary Completion Date: November 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
