Effects of 2-deoxy-d-glucose on focal cerebral ischemia in hyperglycemic rats.


The authors examined the effects of pretreatment with 2-deoxy-d-glucose (2DG) on the middle cerebral artery occlusion-reperfusion (MCAO/R) model in hyperglycemic rats. Proton magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy were used to measure the lesion size, the level of cerebral perfusion deficit, and ratio of lactate to N-acetyl aspartate (NAA) in brain… (More)
