London: A group of medical researchers have recently deemed the clot-busting stroke drug as safe and effective, suggesting that the benefits of the drug outweigh the risks.

Weller explained that the evidence showed that for every 100 patients treated with alteplase, while there is an early risk of a fatal bleed in two patients, after three to six months, around 10 more in every 100 are disability-free when treated within three hours.
 
Weller added that five more patients in every 100 are left with no disabilities when treated between three and four-and-a-half hours after a stroke
