"Wake up strokes constitute a significant percentage of ischemic strokes and are ineligible for thrombolytic therapy due to the current time based restrictions, which is unfortunate because it is likely that some of the events occurred immediately prior to awakening," the researchers write. "Efforts are ongoing to develop better methods of identifying those patients most likely to benefit from treatment while at the same time minimizing exposure to undue risk."

People with wake up strokes were an average of 72 years old, compared to 70 for people who had strokes while awake.

Researchers say the people with wake up strokes had an average score of 4 on a test of stroke severity vs. 3 for those who had strokes while awake. Scores from 1 to 4 on the scale indicate mild strokes.

"This is a group of patients that should be a focus for future studies," Mackey says. "It's likely that some of these strokes occurred immediately prior to awakening, and people would benefit from treatment."

Such strokes, referred to as wake up strokes, account for about 14% of all strokes, according to the study. Previous research estimated the percentage of wake up strokes between 8% and 28%.

Many of those in the study with wake up strokes would have been eligible for clot busting drug treatment if the time of onset of symptoms had been available.
