Stroke is a cerebrovascular disease with high mortality and morbidity. Despite extensive research, there are only a very limited number of therapeutic approaches suitable for treatment of stroke patients as yet. Mounting evidence has demonstrated that such gases as oxygen, hydrogen and hydrogen sulfide are able to provide neuroprotection after stroke. In this paper, we will focus on the recent two years’ progress in the development of gas therapies of stroke and in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying protection induced by medical gases. We will also discuss the advantages and challenges of these approaches and provide information for future study.
