Study Title:  Platelet-Oriented Inhibition in New TIA and Minor Ischemic Stroke (POINT) Trial (Identifier: NCT00991029)

Study Purpose:  A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a transient episode of neurological dysfunction caused by focal brain, spinal cord, or retinal ischemia, without acute infarction. An ischemic stroke is a cerebral infarction. In POINT, eligibility is limited to brain TIAs and to minor ischemic strokes (with an NIH Stroke Scale [NIHSS] score less than or equal to 3). TIAs are common [25], and are often harbingers of disabling strokes. Composite endpoint of new ischemic vascular events: ischemic stroke, myocardial infarction or ischemic vascular death at 90 days.

Principal Investigator: Mouhammad Jumaa, M.D.
