OBJECTIVE The mechanisms underlying neural injury in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) remain uncertain. The present two-part study investigated cell death in the region of ICH and its association with caspase-3 activation. METHODS ICH was produced in adult rats by injection of 100 microl of autologous blood or saline into the right basal ganglia. The(More)
Oscillating field stimulation (OFS) has been used in attempts to treat spinal cord injury (SCI) and has been shown to improve remyelination after SCI in rats. However, some controversies regarding the effects of OFS have been presented in previous papers. Oligodendrocytes (OLs) are the main cell for remyelination and are derived from the differentiation of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and its role in focal cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury. METHODS VEGF protein and mRNA expressions at the site of focal ischemia/reperfusion of rat cerebrum were assessed with immunohistochemistry and hybridization techniques. RESULTS In normal cerebral tissue there was lower(More)
