CAPTIVA Study for Stroke Patients
Protocol: STUDY00006284
Full Title
Comparison of Anti-coagulation and anti-Platelet Therapies for Intracranial Vascular Atherostenosis (CAPTIVA
The University at Buffalo's Neurology Department is working on a study funded by the National Institute of Health. This study is for adults who have had a stroke because their brain's blood vessels were severely narrowed. It's a special type of study where neither the participants nor the researchers know who gets which treatment, which is decided randomly, like tossing a coin. The aim is to see if using different medications together can help prevent blood clots, and this will be combined with medicine and advice on how to live healthier.

The study will last about a year, and people who join will be split into three groups. One group will get aspirin and ticagrelor, another will get aspirin and rivaroxaban, and the last group will get aspirin and clopidogrel. Throughout the year, they'll need to give blood samples and answer some questionnaires. The team running the study will also help them make healthy changes in their lifestyle and manage other health risks. The findings could help doctors prevent strokes better in the future for people with similar health issues.
