Method Of Protecting Brain Tissue From Cerebral Infarction Subsequent To Ischemia


The invention is directed to a method of reducing the extent of infarction, particularly cerebral infarction subsequent to cerebral ischemia, by the administration of citicoline shortly after an ischemic episode and continuing daily treatment for up to about 30 days, preferably for at least about 6 weeks. The method is useful in the treatment of stroke and severe head trauma patients and maximizes the chances for a full or substantially full recovery of the patient.
