Study Background

Objectives

We aimed to improve prevention and diagnosis of stroke and develop novel stroke therapy by means of evidences obtained by FSR. As scientific evidence-based medicine (EBM), FSR enables the R&D of useful preventive methods and treatments. It is also helpful for constructing new strategy in developing diagnostics reagents and therapeutic drugs and study design for clinical trials.

Our mission

By integrating and analyzing stroke patients’ data, we strive to contribute to a progress in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of stroke. Dissemination of the information related to FSR will be helpful to the improvement of health care and welfare.

Future perspectives

In the study, we evaluate the usefulness of diagnostic technique and effectiveness of treatment, and conduct survey on prognosis in patients with stroke. We also perform genomic and proteomic analysis to reveal the causes or pathophysiology of stroke. Through these investigations, we clarify the issues on stroke care, discover the most effective stroke prevention and post-stroke therapy, and possibly develop new diagnostic procedures, treatment methods and therapeutic drugs.
