Secondary brain damage after transient cerebral hypoxia-ischemia (HI) is caused by a cascade of cellular events. In this study, complementary methods of magnetic resonance imaging and histochemistry were used to investigate the formation of cytotoxic and vasogenic edema during secondary brain damage induced by transient HI in 7-d-old rats. To elicit injury,(More)
Diffusion-weighted and transversal relaxation time (T2)-weighted magnetic resonance imaging were used to study the relationship between the duration of hypoxia-ischemia [unilateral common carotid artery (CCA) ligation and exposure to 8% oxygen] and the in vivo visualization of brain edema in 7-d-old rats. After CCA ligation, 35 animals were divided into(More)
The infectious particle causing transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE), a fatal neurodegenerative disease of humans and animals, has been termed prion. Its major component is an aggregated variant of the cellular prion protein, PrP(C). The main target of prion pathology is the central nervous system (CNS), yet most prion diseases are initiated or(More)
