In Australia, 55,000 people suffer a stroke every year. That’s one life changed forever every 9 minutes.
It is vital that stroke sufferers get treatment immediately. The longer a stroke remains untreated, the greater the chance that permanent brain damage will occur, leaving behind paralysis, speech problems and other devastating disabilities.
There is only one treatment available for stroke. And this drug can only be used for less than 10 per cent of stroke sufferers.
But there's good news.
How can you help?
The majority of strokes are due to a blood clot blocking blood supply to part of the brain, starving it of oxygen. Our drug, when combined with existing stroke treatments, dissolves the blood clot better than the existing drug alone.
Most importantly, our drug has the potential to be used in all people who suffer a stroke.
We need to manufacture our drug, test the dosage in our trial participants, and conduct imaging scans and other tests. These processes are incredibly expensive.
With a small donation, you can help us turn the potential of our life-changing drug into reality. Just $25 will fund 1 dose of our clot-busting drug, and $100 will fund an imaging scan of a trial participant.
