In Reply We appreciate the interest of Kawada in our work.1 Our study was designed to analyze the association between ischemic stroke prevention and treatment; we defined our variables and conducted our data analysis accordingly. We disagree with Kawada’s statement that the “empirical method is not suitable for scientific research.” We look forward to further investigations of how stroke prevention and treatment are associated.
