Neuroprotection in Ischemic Stroke: AhR We Making Progress?
Cerebrovascular accidents, more commonly referred to as "strokes," remain the second most common cause of mortality and the third most common cause of disability worldwide1. It has been estimated that more than three quarters of all strokes in the United States are due to ischemia, with the remainder principally related to intracranial hemhorrhage2,3. While our attempts to address modifiable risk factors for stroke have decreased its incidence, stroke-related death and disability are increasing at concerning rates4,5.
