Study Trials

FLOW trial actively recruiting patients
across Canada


The FLOW trial (FLuoxetine to Open the critical time period Window to improve motor recovery after stroke) is looking for individuals who had a stroke within the past seven months, are experiencing lower limb difficulties, and who do not have a clinical diagnosis of depression. The double-blinded placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial will examine whether a combination therapy involving exercise and fluoxetine can be effective in improving lower-limb motor recovery post-stroke over a three- to four-month period.

The study is led by Dr. Mark Bayley of Toronto Rehabilitation Institute and Dr. Janice Eng of the University of British Columbia, and is currently recruiting from multiple sites across Canada.

This is the first study launched on the new national stroke recovery clinical trialsinfrastructure developed with funding from CPSR and Brain Canada.

CPSR-funded AEROBICS update posted on Stroke Engine
The 2019 Update to the AEROBICS guidelines for stroke recovery, funded in part by the CPSR, have been completed and posted on the Stroke Engine website. View the guidelines HERE.
Highlighting post-stroke fatigue
Fatigue is a major problem after stroke, affecting as many as half of all survivors. CPSR's Dr. Annie Rochette of the Universite de Montreal, director of the Stroke Engine website, recently participated in the development of a 40-minute French-language documentary on post-stroke fatigue. The documentary, which tells the stories of people living with post-stroke fatigue (pictured above), aims to highlight the issue and to provide coping strategies. Watch it here: www.bit.ly/avcfatigue
