RESSTORE is a challenging European project to develop reparative medicine for stroke patients. Improving patients’ recovery requires experts of cell therapy products, neurosciences, and stroke neurology. Innovative multimodal MRI and statistics also increase our knowledge about stroke pathophysiology and treatment effects.
While we have just obtained the regulatory and ethics approval, we will start the clinical trial in the next weeks. It is our pleasure to present here the first RESSTORE newsletter on behalf of the European consortium including France, Spain, Finland, Czech Republic and UK.
Frequent sauna bathing is associated with a reduced risk of stroke, according to a new international study. In a 15-year follow-up study, people taking a sauna 4-7 times a week were 61% less likely to suffer a stroke than those taking a sauna once a week. This is the first prospective large-scale study on this topic, and the findings were reported in Neurology.
Stroke is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide, placing a heavy human and economic burden on societies. The reduced risk associated with sauna bathing was found by a team of scientists from the Universities of Eastern Finland, Bristol, Leicester, Atlanta, Cambridge and Innsbruck.
