    106–113]. The advantage of sharing research interests, trial logistics and funding sources have been the major advantages motivating investigators to consider horizontal translation of a single trial concept into a modular trial design (fig. 1, part E). One of the most frequently encountered constellations is a complementary genetic or imaging study as a piggyback protocol to a larger parent study, as has been the case in neurological clinical trials on stroke and dementia, among others. One of the recent landmark studies in stroke prevention, the Warfarin Aspirin Recurrent Stroke Study [5], has served as a platform for 4 additional stand-alone protocols [6], including the Antiphospholipid Antibodies in Stroke Study [7], the Patent Foramen Ovale in Cryptogenic Stroke Study [8], the Hemostatic System Activation Study [9] and the Genes in Stroke Study.

    Nevertheless, the need for intensive rehabilitation and the reality of prolonged disability exacts a significant toll on the individual, his or her family and society. Effective ways of maintaining or recovering function could markedly improve the outlook for persons with these insults by enabling higher levels of independence and productivity. Goals of Drug Therapies for Acute Neurological Disorders Neuroprotection The focus for pharmacological intervention to preserve neurological function after these acute central nervous system (CNS) injuries is based on the idea that most vascular and/or neurodegeneration that follows these injuries is not due to the primary ischemic, hemorrhagic or mechanical (that is, shearing of blood vessels and nerve cells) insults, but to secondary injury events set in motion by the primary injury.

    In addition to the control of the temporal expression of a gene, it is now possible to specifically manipulate the expression of a particular gene in specific brain regions. This region-specific KO is accomplished by use of the Cre recombinase (also known as Cre-Lox) technology in which mice are first generated with an inducible tissue-specific promoter for expression of Cre. These mice are crossed with a second mouse line in which the gene of interest can be knocked in by flanked Cre recognition sequences known as Lox-P sites.
