In order to participate you must meet the following criteria:
- Are age ≥ 18 years (no upper age limit).
- Have mild ischemic stroke.
- Have the study treatment initiated within three hours of last known well time without stroke symptoms (i.e., last seen normal).

This is a partial list of inclusion criteria.
