Gavestinel produces no benefit for stroke patients, study finds.

[No authors listed]


There was only problem, it didn't work. The wonder drug, gavestinel, failed to produce any significant treatment benefits for patients treated within six hours after experiencing an acute ischemic stroke, according to the recent results of a major clinical trial of the neuroprotectant. The outcome has dimmed the optimism of hospitalists that rapid treatment would dramatically improve patient outcomes.
