Take part in the MILESTONESM Stroke Study

As someone who has experienced an ischemic stroke, you know that walking problems may be a challenging step in the recovery process. Currently, there are no FDA approved medications available for improving the walking problems in these patients.

Participate in the MILESTONESM Stroke Study, a stage 3 clinical study evaluating an investigational medication in patients who have continuing walking problems at least 6 months following an ischemic stroke. Call 1-866-735-3667.
