The multicentral pilot clinical trial of gliatilin in treatment of acute ischemic stroke was held in 2006–2008 in Russia. The trial involved 122 patients, who received basic treatment and gliatilin during 3 months after the stroke onset (1–15 days – 2000 mg per day, 16–30 days – 1000 mg per day, 31–90 days – 800 mg per day). All patients underwent clinical examination (including repeated NIHSS, Rankin scale, Barthel index assessment), laboratory and ultrasound examination, computer tomography or magnetic resonance imaging during 24 hours after the stroke onset. 25 patients underwent repeated multimodal magnetic resonance imaging (T1-, T2-, diffusion-, perfusion-weighted imaging). The results of examination of patients who received basic treatment alone were taken from literature. The trial results show, that treatment of acute ischemic stroke with gliatilin promotes neurological recovery and increase of patient’s self-care ability, which is probably concerned with the smaller final volume of brain infarct.
