Principal Investigator: Philip B. Gorelick, M.D., M.P.H Rush University Medical Center

Overview of Trial

The African-American Antiplatelet Stroke Prevention Study is designed to prevent recurrent strokes by administration of aspirin or ticlopidine. The study also provides community information on reducing risk of stroke and recognizing the symptoms of stroke. The study involves more than 50 participating hospitals located throughout the United States. Study medication is provided free of charge, and a transportation stipend is available for those in need.

Disease State(s) Studied (e.g. acute MI, breast cancer, etc.)

Stroke Cerebral Infarction

  • African American
  • 29-85 years of age
  • Non-cardioembolic cerebral infarct
  • Onset of entry stroke at least 7 days but no more than 90 days

  • Non-qualifying entry events: TIA, subarachnoid hemorrhage, cardiac embolism, iatrogenic stroke, postoperative stroke within 30 days of operation, and carotid endarterectomy as preventive treatment of entry stroke.
  • Mean arterial blood pressure > 130mmHg on 3 consecutive days
  • Modified Barthel Index < 10
  • History of dementia or neurodegenerative disease
  • Severe comorbid condition such as cancer that would limit survival during 2 year follow-up period
  • Concurrent enrollment in another clinical trial
