Effects of an antistroke agent MCl-186 on cerebral arachidonate cascade.


Activation of the cerebral arachidonate (AA) cascade is one of the major causes of edema and tissue injury in cerebral ischemia, particularly after reperfusion. The cascade produces toxic oxygen radicals responsible for peroxidative neurodegeneration and synthesizes, the potent edematous inducer, leukotrienes. The present study was undertaken to evaluate… (More)
