More details on the snake venom research

Last posting linked to a news article about research in using snake venom to treat stroke patients. A more technical and detailed link can be found with the Internet Stroke Center's Stroke Trials Registry.

The page describes the efforts to learn about the results of an intravenous infusion of ancrod - pit viper venom - within six hours of a stroke. The study looks at patient status three months afterward.

The study is still recruiting facilities and patients to
take part in the study.
