Preclinical animal models can help guide the development of clinical pediatric and newborn stroke trials. Data obtained using currently available models of hypoxia-ischemia and focal stroke have demonstrated the need for age-appropriate models. There are age-related differences in susceptibility of the immature brain to oxidative stress and inflammation, as well as in the rate and degree of apoptotic neuronal death. These issues need to be carefully addressed in designing future clinical trials.
