Condition or disease
Ischemic Stroke

Study Type : Observational [Patient Registry]
Estimated Enrollment : 2650 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Target Follow-Up Duration: 3 Months
Official Title: Mild and Rapidly Improving Stroke Study
Study Start Date : March 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 2019

Mild and Rapidly Improving Ischemic Stroke

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of patients not independent at 90 days [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    The primary outcome measure is proportion of patients with a modified Rankin Scale of 2-6 at 90 days

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of patients with dependence or disability in activities of daily living at 90 days [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    Proportion of patients not independent in activities of daily living defined as a Barthel Index score <95

  2. Symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage due to Alteplase [ Time Frame: 36 hours ]
    Amongst those that receive intravenous Alteplase, a secondary safety measure is the proportion of patients that develop neurologic worsening development of symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage, defined as neurological deterioration that, in the judgment of the investigator, is related to intracranial hemorrhage confirmed by CT or MRI, within 36 hours of administration of Alteplase.

  3. Proportion of patients not independent at 30 days [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Proportion of patients with modified Rankin Scale 2-6 at 30 days.

  4. Quality of life by the EuroQOL EQ-5D [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    EuroQOL will be treated as a continuous measure

  5. Stroke disability by the Stroke-Impact Scale-16 [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    SIS-16 will be treated as a continuous measure

  6. Independence with Activities of Daily Living by the Barthel Index [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    BI will be treated as a continuous measure; pre specified analysis include proportion of patients with Barthel Index <95
