Cerebral edema represents a major threat following traumatic brain injury. However, therapeutic measures for control of intracranial pressure alone have failed to restore cerebral metabolism and improve neurological outcome. Since mitochondrial damage results in ATP depletion and deactivation of membrane ionic pumps, we hypothesized that modulation of ATP(More)
Increasing evidence has established the involvement of the 18-kDa translocator protein (TSPO) in the process of mitochondrial membrane permeabilization and subsequent apoptosis through modulation of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore. Recent studies have shown that treatment with Ro5-4864, a TSPO ligand, resulted in a neuroprotective effect in(More)
INTRODUCTION Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are a major cause of mortality and disability among young adults. TBI are characterized by primary injury, the result of a mechanical impact to the cranium and a secondary injury, a series of molecular mechanism processes developing thereafter. Cerebral cells modify their gene and protein expression as a result of(More)
