Hypothermia-induced reduction in the permeation of radiolabelled tracer substances across the blood-brain barrier


The permeability of the rat blood-brain barrier during different levels of hypothermia was examined using a new and more sensitive quantitative radiotracer technique. In contrast to the findings of previous studies, tracer permeation as measured here by the calculated cerebrovascular permeability-area product (PA), did not increase during hypothermia… (More)
