Date:4/17/2009

One in 20 People Who Experience a TIA Are Expected to Suffer a Stroke Within Two Days(1)

RIDGEFIELD, Conn., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- National Stroke Association and Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today announced the launch of Talk About TIA!, a new educational initiative to raise awareness of an under-recognized but serious health risk - transient ischemic attack (TIA). TIA is an important warning sign that a stroke may occur. In fact, one in 20 people who experience a TIA are expected to suffer a stroke within two days.(1) Talk About TIA! is the first comprehensive and interactive online resource for people to learn about TIA, the link between TIA and stroke, and how to help reduce the risk of stroke following a TIA.

"Suffering a TIA is one of the most significant warnings that a stroke may occur, and knowing about TIA can be crucial to help reduce your risk of suffering a stroke," said James Baranski, CEO, National Stroke Association. "TalkAboutTIA.com is a much-needed resource that can help millions become more familiar with this important health warning and encourage them to take action and call 911 immediately if they've experienced a TIA. Steps like these can help reduce their risk of suffering a potentially devastating stroke."

TIA affects more than 240,000 Americans every year, but many don't realize they've had one.(2) TIAs can be difficult to recognize and are often dismissed as minor, temporary discomforts because they happen quickly and last less than a day(3) - in fact, most last less than five minutes.(4) Approximately half of those who experience a TIA fail to report it to their health
