About EuroHYP: legal entity and bylaws

The European Stroke Research Network for Hypothermia (EuroHYP) is a not-for-profit scientific association registered in Belgium, under the number: 0808.543.104 (legal form: "association sans but lucratif" ).

The association was established in December 2008 to create a strong and transparent legal platform for the activities of the network – including a major pan-European research programme on hypothermia.

The purpose of EuroHYP is setout in the bylaws of the organisation.

The association aims to develop, support and promote the medical research and dissemination activities related to stroke and brain diseases in general, especially considering the experimental and clinical research related to hypothermia and its therapeutic applications aiming to protect the human health.

The purpose is substantiated by
1. the creation of a pan-European organizational platform for networking and collaboration among scientists involved in hypothermia and stroke research;

2. organisation of scientific symposia and participation in conferences;

3. the design, organisation and implementation of experimental and clinical research trials, and projects aiming to identify the benefits of hypothermia - including the validation of novel technologies;

4. fundraising effort aiming to build the financial base necessary for conducting novel, advanced hypothermia experimental and clinical studies;

5. the creation of a website as a depository of the literature and research efforts ongoing in the area of hypothermia;

6. the realisation of other projects in the context of the association's general purpose."

Hypothermia Call for Action

In 2010 a consensus meeting hosted by EuroHYP agreed the Hypothermia: Call for Action, later published in the International Journal of Stroke

Rationale for trial design

In this JCBFM Review Article> the EuroHYP investigators discuss the various considerations which have led to the design of the EuroHYP trial protocol

Supporting Experimental Data

In one of the most highly cited systematic reviews of animal studies van der Worp and colleagues show that animal data supporting hypothermia is more convincing than for any other intervention
