New drug that can ease effects of stroke discovered
A team of Australian researchers has discovered a drug that may have the potential to reduce, and even stop, the effects of stroke.
A new study on mice showed the drug, which mimics some actions of oestrogen, protects females against stroke, while worsening the condition in males, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
During the trials in mice, the researchers at Monash University found that by blocking the recently discovered oestrogen receptor in males they could alleviate the symptoms of stroke, while triggering the receptor with a drug in older females protected them from harmful effects of stroke.
Lead researcher Chris Sobey said the findings could lead to sex-specific treatments for stroke.
The study was published in the journal Stroke.
