The Prevention of Stroke in intracerebral haemorrhage survivor with Atrial Fibrillation (PRESTIGE-AF) unites researchers and clinicians crosswise over Europe with the objective of lessening the danger of further stroke in this gathering of patients.
At the centre of the PRESTIGE-AF task will be a clinical trial to assemble prove around suggested a drug for stroke avoidance in patients with AF. Various substudies will investigate individual prescient hazard demonstrating utilizing cerebrum imaging, hereditary testing and other organic markers.

The Consortium individuals will work cooperatively inside the European Commission structure to convey the coveted results throughout the following five years.
Professor Veltkamp said: “Prevention of stroke is challenging in vulnerable stroke patients with multiple disorders and interacting risks. It’s this complexity that makes it difficult to work out the best individual preventive strategy for a particular patient.”
“Working with our international partners through the PRESTIGE-AF initiative we hope to tackle some of the unmet needs of these patients and develop more personalised treatments. Prevention is key, and ultimately we aim to prevent stroke and the impact it has on patients’ lives.”
