Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
The National Institutes of Health funded the Albumin in Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (ALISAH) pilot study, initiated in May 2006 and terminated in May 2010. The study was originally planned for 3 years but mostly due to the principal investigators transferring institutions and initiation of 2 non-US sites, 1 extra year was needed.

  Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Safety and Tolerability of the 25% Human Albumin Dosages and the Functional Outcome.   [ Time Frame: 9 days after enrollment ]

2.  Secondary:   Serious Adverse Events   [ Time Frame: within 3 months after enrollment ]

3.  Secondary:   Good Clinical Outcome Was Defined as a Glasgow Outcome Scale Score of 0-1   [ Time Frame: 3 months after enrollment ]

  Serious Adverse Events

  Other Adverse Events

  Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Our study has several limitations. ALISAH is an early phase design and we do not have concurrent controls. In addition, the study was neither randomized nor powered to test for efficacy effects.
