    2. Subjects with a clinical diagnosis of acute ischemic stroke in the MCA territory
    3. Subjects with a large hemispheric infarction defined as per the protocol
    4. Subjects who are able to understand the purpose and risks of the study and provide signed and dated informed consent and authorization to use confidential health information
    5. Subjects who receive thrombectomy prior to randomization, inclusion into the study must be based on an infarct volume of 80 to 300 cm3 measured by post-thrombectomy MRI-DWI.
    6. Subjects who are able to start Study drug treatment infusion as soon as possible but no later than 10 hours after time of symptom onset

    4. Subjects who have impaired cognitive capabilities or unable to provide written informed consent
    5. Subjects with clinical signs of herniation, brain hemorrhage, and has evidence of anteroseptal/pineal shift >2 mm
    6. Subjects who use intra-arterial thrombolytic agents, alone or in combination with thrombectomy
    7. Subjects who are currently being considered for thrombectomy and/or IV thrombolysis may not be randomized into the study until these procedures have been completed OR the decision not to perform them has been made
