Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects with a favorable outcome measured on the Extended Glasgow Outcome Scale [Primary Efficacy Endpoint] [ Time Frame: 90 Days ]
    Proportion of subjects with a favorable outcome measured on the Extended Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOSE) at Day 90


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects with favorable neurocognitive outcome measured by the Montreal Cognitive Assessment [Secondary Efficacy Endpoint] [ Time Frame: 90 Days ]
    Proportion of subjects with favorable neurocognitive outcome measured by the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) at Day 90


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 90 Days ]
    Incidence and severity of adverse events in EG-1962 treated subjects compared to subjects treated with standard of care oral nimodipine

  2. Delayed Cerebral Infarction [ Time Frame: 30 Days ]
    Proportion of subjects with delayed cerebral infarction present on CT scan at Day 30
