(INSIST) IN-Silico trials for treatment of acute Ischemic STroke

Project summary

INSIST will generate virtual populations of stroke patients, generate and validate in silico models for intra-arterial thrombectomy, thrombosis and thrombolysis, and microvascular perfusion and neurological deterioration after stroke, and integrate the in silico models to realize an in silico clinical stroke trial. INSIST is uniquely positioned by the availability of a large pool of clinical, imaging, histopathological, and outcome data from multiple recently finalized stroke trials, a large registry (totaling 4500 patients), and new trials that will start later this year (totaling 2500 patients). They will build a population model that takes this input to generate virtual populations of stroke patients addressing the wide variety of patient characteristics.


The main goal of INSIST is to advance treatments of ischemic stroke and its introduction in clinical practice by realizing in silico clinical stroke trials in which stroke and treatment are modeled.
