Tissue plasminogen activator and total cholesterol decreased, and high-density lipoprotein increased.
Most strokes result from clots, but only about 1 in 20 patients receives the sole clot-dissolving drug approved for treating stroke, tissue plasminogen activator (tPA).
Recent studies have shown that a clot-dissolving medication, tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA), is highly effective in reversing the effects of the most common forms of strokes when administered within three hours of early symptoms.
9) Similarly, in a cost-effective analysis of thrombolytic therapy with tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) compared to streptokinase, the authors conclude, "The cost-effectiveness of treatment with accelerated t-PA rather than streptokinase compares favorably with that of other therapies whose added medical benefit for dollars spent is judged by society to be worthwhile.
