Abstract

The application of galactose-based microbubbles (Levovist) strongly accelerates lysis of clots exposed to 2 MHz, low-intensity US in vitro both with and without rt-PA. The findings suggest a synergy between microbubbles and rt-PA. These methods routinely used for transcranial diagnostic applications have the potential to improve the efficacy of intravenous rt-PA in acute ischemic stroke.
