Central neurons are extremely vulnerable to hypoxic/ischemic insult, which is a major cause of neurologic morbidity and mortality as a consequence of neuronal dysfunction and death. Our recent work has shown that delta-opioid receptor (DOR) is neuroprotective against hypoxic and excitotoxic stress, although the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Because(More)
This study was performed to see whether local injection of dexamethasone may protect the neural grafts from immunological rejection and increase the successive rate of graft. Rats with unilateral 6-hydroxydopamine lesions of the mesostriatal dopamine pathway received fetal ventral mesencephalic (FVM) cells and dexamethasone in two regions of the striatum(More)
