Lithium (Li +) treatment of NTera2/D1 (or hNT Neurons) in culture increases tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) expression in this cell-line [Zigova et al., (1999) Exp. Neurol., 157, 251-258]. It is not known if these Li + treated cells maintain TH expression once transplanted into the striatum of the hemiparkinsonian rats. hNT neurons were either treated with 1 mm(More)
The middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) in the rat is a commonly used model to evaluate new therapeutic strategies for the treatment of ischemic stroke. However, many such studies rely on short-term neurological examination and infarct volume as endpoint measures while neglecting more long-term functional assessments.
