Pediatric Stroke Research

VIPS Study

The VIPS (Vascular Effects of Infection in Pediatric Stroke) study is a large multicenter study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and co-led by two researchers in pediatric stroke at SickKids in Toronto (Dr. Gabrielle DeVeber) and the University of California in San Francisco (Dr. Heather Fullerton). Dr. Peter Humphreys is the CHEO-based site investigator.

The purpose of the VIPS study is to assess the possible role of intercurrent infections in the pathogenesis of pediatric stroke. The study was closed to accrual two years ago but the data is still being analyzed (August 2016). CHEO was able to contribute 12 participants to the VIPS study.


So far, there have been 4 publications as a result of this study, and we expect more to follow.
