What are the neuroprotective drugs that could be used against ischemic stroke?

I'm not aware of any drugs that can actually protect the neural tissue against ischemia, nor of any drug that protects any tissue in general against infarction. The only drugs that really are, in a sense, protective are drugs that lower the risk of heart disease or vascular disease, since those are really the only causes of ischemic stroke. These drugs are the ones used against hypertension, hyperlipidemia, arrythmias, etc
