Reflections on Neuroprotection Research and the Path Toward Clinical Success
From retrospective analysis in rt-PA ineligible stroke patients, embolectomy alone has proven safe and beneficial if completed within 6 h.
Voltage-gated cation channel modulators for the treatment of stroke
There is a need for changes in clinical trial designs to optimise the selection of patients and the course of drug treatment to protect neurons during all periods of potential neuronal sensitivity to neuro-protectants, and the development of future solutions to these problems should result in an improved probability of success for the treatment of stroke.
Computational models of neuronal biophysics and the characterization of potential neuropharmacological targets.
This brief review of neuromolecular medicine from the computational perspective provides compelling examples of how simulations can elucidate, explain, and predict the effect of chemical agonists, antagonists, and modulators in the nervous system.
