Glibenclamide for Large Hemispheric Infarction Analyzing mRS and Mortality


Site Primary Investigator (UMASS): Raphael A. Carandang, MD.

Study Coordinator: Lauren Vilchinsky,, 508-856-4667

Design: A randomized, multi-center, placebo-controlled, double-blinded trial.

Funded by: Biogen Inc.


Primary Objective:

-To determine if BIIB093 improves functional outcome in comparison to placebo in patients with large hemispheric ischemic stroke.

Secondary Objectives:

-To determine BIIB093’s safety profile, improvement in survival, and reduction in midline shift in comparison to placebo use.

Outcome measures:  Improvement of mRS at day 90.

Anticipated study duration: 4-5 years

Anticipated patient enrollment: Total of 600 subjects and up to 80 subjects with age >70 years and up to 85 years (inclusive). Link:
