Surgeons trial new drug to help brain haemorrhage patients


Surgeons in Southampton are trialling a new drug based on a chemical found in broccoli to try to improve outcomes for brain haemorrhage patients.


Diederik Bulters, a consultant neurosurgeon at Southampton General Hospital, and his team will assess the effect of experimental drug SFX-01 on patients who have received treatment for a bleed on the brain known as a subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH), which is a type of stroke.


SFX-01 is a synthetic form of sulforaphane, a small molecule that occurs naturally in the vegetable and is part of a group of chemicals found in plants – phytochemicals – that are strong antioxidants and can help regulate some of the body’s functions.

This sounds brilliant, I guess it would probably be just for 'new' SAH's. I had mine 25 years ago last week on my 30th birthday.

A few months ago, I listened to the audio version of the video below from scientist, Rhonda Patrick on the benefits of sulforaphane in the diet. I began consuming broccoli sprouts with regularity. A month ago, I had a subarachnoid hemorrhage.  I'm recovering quite well from it. I don't know if there was any beneficial relationship from the sulforaphane I was getting in my diet, but I will continue with the broccoli sprouts just in case.
