Leukocytes have been postulated to contribute to cerebral ischemia and reperfusion injury. The present study implies that leukocytes have a deleterious effect in the brain following ischemia. We compared the alteration of cortical electrical activity following transient, incomplete cerebral ischemia in control and leukopenic rats by monitoring somatosensory(More)
White blood cell involvement in the generation of cerebral infarcts was evaluated following ischemia and reperfusion injury in the rat. Control and leukopenic rats (induced by vinblastine, WBC counts < 1500/mm3) were compared in a global forebrain ischemic model after 1 h of ischemia and 1 h 15 min of reperfusion. Cerebral infarcts were defined on coronal(More)
OBJECT Experimental rat models are often used to study cerebral ischemia, yet rats are nocturnal animals that have activity cycles that are the opposite of those of humans. In the following study the authors examined the circadian rhythm of sensitivity to an ischemic insult in rats by using an intraluminal thread technique to produce reversible middle(More)
Monocytes (m phi s) come into intimate contact with basement membranes and extracellular matrix proteins as they extravasate from the blood to the interstitium or to sites of tissue injury. We examined the in vitro effects of m phi adherence to an endothelial cell-derived basement membrane or to purified extracellular matrix proteins on phorbol myristate(More)
