New way to protect brain from stroke damage
...Association. About 700,000 Americans have a stroke each
year--one every 45 seconds. A type of cardiovascular disease, stroke affects arteries of the brain. In ischemic stroke, the most common form, a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain becomes blocked by a clot. As a result, part o...
