About SITS-MOST (Safe Implementation of Thrombolysis in Stroke - MOnitoring STudy)
Systematic reviews of randomised controlled trials indicate that treatment with thrombolytics is highly beneficial when given within three hours from onset of stroke symptoms. SITS-MOST, the world’s largest stroke registry/network for acute stroke centres, has demonstrated that broad implementation of thrombolysis in acute stroke treatment is both as safe and as effective in routine clinical practice as it has been shown to be in randomised clinical trials. Data from SITS-MOST (n=6483) show that ‘real-life’ treatment with Actilyse® within three hours resulted in both improved mortality (11.3% vs. 17.3%) and safety (symptomatic intracerebral haemorrhage 7.3% vs. 8.6%) when compared to randomised controlled trials.2

SITS-MOST is embedded within the Safe Implementation of Thrombolysis in Stroke International Stroke Thrombolysis Register (SITS-ISTR), an internet-based, international monitoring registry for auditing the safety and efficacy of routine therapeutic use of thrombolysis in acute ischaemic stroke. The registry is available to clinicians in many countries worldwide except Japan and North America. Acute stroke treatment with thrombolysis is currently under-used with wide variations from country to country and region to region. Less than two percent of overall stroke patients in the EU currently receive thrombolysis.
