Cause of Neonatal Strokes Identified
Scientists have discovered an important cause of stroke occurring in the womb or just after birth, paving the way for new treatments.
The research identified that a low number of platelets (small blood cells known for enabling clotting) in babies, either in the womb or in newborns, could cause bleeding in the brain. These types of bleeds can lead to fatal strokes or permanent neurological conditions, such as cerebral palsy.
