brain bleed in people with atrial fibrillation (AF)
Protocol: STUDY00004192
Full Title
Anticoagulation in Intracerebral Hemorrhage (ICH) Survivors for Stroke Prevention and Recovery (ASPIRE)
This study enrolls people with atrial fibrillation (AF) who have had a recent brain bleed (with in 4 months). The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of apixaban (also known as Eliquis®) with aspirin in patients to see which is better in preventing strokes and death.

You will be in this study for up to 3 years. After the first visit, routine follow-up visits will occur every 3 months for a maximum of 3 years. Please contact the research team for more details about the details of the study. Study takes place at Gates Vascular Institute/Buffalo General Medical Center and UBMD Neruovascular Clinics.

outcomes as measured by the modified Rankin Scale.
