Studies have shown that progesterone enhances functional recovery after ischemic stroke, but the underlying mechanisms are not completely understood. Therefore, we investigated the effect of progesterone on vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), and neurogenesis in a rodent stroke model. Rats underwent permanent(More)
In this study, we examined the effect of progesterone on histopathologic and functional outcomes of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in 10- to 12-month-old mice. Progesterone or vehicle was administered by intraperitoneal injection 1 hour after collagenase-induced ICH and then by subcutaneous injections at 6, 24, and 48 hours. Oxidative and nitrosative stress(More)

This study was designed to investigate dynamic changes in the cellular immune system and circulating inflammatory markers after ischemic stroke. Blood was collected from 96 patients and 99 age-matched control subjects for detection of lymphocyte subpopulations and inflammatory markers. We observed decreases in B cells, Th cells, cytotoxic T cells, and NK(More)
