(Table 1) Unfortunately, throughout the neuroprotective literature, the phrase "failure to demonstrate efficacy" prevails as a common thread among the many neutral or negative trials, despite the largely encouraging results encountered in(More)
Existing experimental evidence suggests that PPARgamma may play a beneficial role in neuroprotection from various brain pathologies. Here we found that focal cerebral ischemia induced by middle cerebral/common carotid arteries occlusion (MCA/CCAo) induced up-regulation of PPARgamma messenger RNA in the ischemic hemisphere as early as 6 h after the ischemic(More)
BACKGROUND Residual blood flow around thrombus prior to treatment predicts success of coronary thrombolysis. The authors aimed to correlate the presence of residual flow signals in the middle cerebral artery (MCA) with completeness of recanalization after intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (TPA). METHODS The authors studied consecutive patients(More)
