The Emergency Medicine Annotated Bioresource Consortium (EM-ABC): A pilot and feasability programme

 

 Aim

To develop the infrastructure and pilot a prospective, consecutive, emergency, bioresource that will subsequently be developed for all emergency presentations

Trial Design

A pilot and feasibility programme to establish a bioresource to provide consecutive emergency samples, thus enabling investigation of the development of the acute disease/influence of disease modifiers e.g. treatment and resuscitation.

More EMERGE Trials

Strokes caused by a clot are described as ischaemic. When patients experience ischaemic strokes they may be eligible for “clot busting” therapy (thrombolysis). Currently thrombolysis has been shown to improve patient outcome after a stroke if administered within the first 4.5 hours after stroke onset. Up to 25% of patients wake up with symptoms of a stroke. This means they have an unknown onset time for their stroke (so called ‘wake up strokes’). With no known onset time, they are ineligible for thrombolysis. This study will investigate how we might determine stroke onset time.
