An immunochemical method is described for quantitative assessment of serum proteins and hemoglobin content in brain tissue homogenates. Using a combination of affinity chromatography and radioimmunoassay, the sensitivity of the method is 50 ng hemoglobin and 100 ng serum protein per assay, respectively. The method was used to measure cerebral hematocrit,(More)
In anesthetized adult cats, acute stroke was produced by transorbital occlusion of the left middle cerebral artery. A battery of imaging techniques was used for simultaneous evaluation of regional blood flow, glucose utilization, protein synthesis, pH, and the regional tissue content of glucose, ATP, and potassium. The electrophysiological impact of stroke(More)
Vasogenic brain edema was induced in cats by cold injury (six animals), brain tumors (five animals), and brain abscesses (six animals). Water and electrolyte content, specific gravity, blood volume, and the amount of extravasated serum proteins were determined in small tissue samples taken from gray and white matter at various distances from the lesion.(More)
The components of vasogenic edema associated with brain tumors were investigated in human biopsy material sampled from tumor and peritumoral tissue during neurosurgical operations. Tissue from 60 patients with glioblastomas, gliomas, meningiomas, and metastases who had been treated with dexamethasone prior to surgery was used for measurement of water,(More)
Recovery of protein synthesis following 1 h of complete ischemia of the monkey brain was assessed by 3H-labeled amino acid incorporation in vivo at various postischemic periods between 1.5 and 24 h. The regional autoradiographic patterns obtained were compared on the basis of precursor-product relationships determined biochemically at the end of the tracer(More)
A triple-tracer autoradiographic technique is described that permits the simultaneous measurement of cerebral blood flow, glucose consumption, and protein synthesis using 131I-iodoantipyrine (131I-IAP), [14C]deoxyglucose ([14C]DG), and 3H-amino acids as radioactive tracers. Autoradiographic differentiation between isotopes was performed by taking advantage(More)
Experimental tumors and abscesses were produced by intrahemispheric inoculation of a blastomatous glial cell clone and of staphylococcus aureus, respectively. In both models severe vasogenic brain edema developed. The site of the barrier lesion was identified by systemic application of Evans blue or peroxidase, and the spread of edema by(More)
The regional distribution of albumin in serum extravasations of cerebral edema was visualized on intact brain slices by autoradiography of 125I-labeled antibodies directed against albumin. Following autoradiographic imaging of edema protein spread, concentrations of total serum proteins were determined by radioimmunoassay in tissue micro samples taken from(More)
