One in six people will suffer from stroke in their lifetime. Of the estimated 15 million victims worldwide, 6 million die every year and another 6 million are permanently disabled. Worse, the incidence of strokes is increasing, especially among people under age 55. By 2050, the number of strokes will have more than doubled, according to the American Stroke Association. Annual costs of stroke in the European Union alone are estimated at $53.1 billion.
