Treating mild strokes with a clot-busting drug usually reserved for more severe strokes could prevent disability and reduce costs, according to a study released at the International Stroke Conference this week.

Researchers at the University of Cincinnati say the move could save $200 million annually on disability costs, and leave fewer people with the disabling after-effects of a stroke.
