Although the number of people dying from stroke has been dropping, it is a leading cause of disability in adults in the U.S.

An international team of researchers now report a possible strategy to prevent the long-term neurological damage that occurs after strokes involving intracerebral hemorrhage, or bleeding in the brain. They show that inhibiting a metalloenzyme in neurons improves neurological function in rodents experiencing brain hemorrhages (Sci. Transl. Med. 2016, DOI: . . .
