The NIH has created the NIH StrokeNet to conduct small and large clinical trials and research studies to advance acute stroke treatment, stroke prevention, and recovery and rehabilitation following a stroke. This network of 25 regional centers across the U.S., which involves more than 200 hospitals, is designed to serve as the infrastructure and pipeline for exciting new potential treatments for patients with stroke and those at risk for stroke. In addition, NIH StrokeNet will provide an educational platform for stroke physicians and clinical trial coordinators.
In September 2013, the National Institutes of Health funded the stroke trials network, NIH StrokeNet. The StrokeNet infrastructure consists of 25 regional coordinating centers across the US, a national coordinating center at the University of Cincinnati, and a national data management center (Medical University of South Carolina). The primary goal of this network is to maximize efficiencies to develop, promote and conduct high-quality, multi-site clinical trials focused on key interventions in stroke prevention, treatment and recovery.

The NIH national Rehabilitation Research Resource to Enhance
Clinical Trials (REACT), based at the University of Alabama at
Birmingham (UAB), invites letters of intent for pilot studies that
address novel scientific questions related to medical
rehabilitation and that will lead to more definitive clinical trials.

Treatments for acute stroke include IV t-PA, stroke centers, stroke units, endovascular thrombectomy devices for selected patients, nimodipine for subarachnoid hemorrhage, and aneurysm coiling and clipping for ruptured aneurysms. Intracerebral hemorrhage has proven to be the most challenging for effective treatments; however recent research has shown promise
Despite the advances made in acute stroke care, stroke remains the leading cause of adult disability in Americans. World-wide there is an estimated 50 million stroke survivors coping with significant physical, cognitive and emotional deficits. The field of stroke recovery and restorative neuroscience is still young and provides a rich environment for innovative trials.
