The role of the aging human erythrocyte in the mechanisms leading to cerebral vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage was investigated using an in vitro model for the environment of the erythrocyte in a subarachnoid blood clot. It has long been suspected that, due to its potent vasoactivity, erythrocyte lysate provides the major vasoconstrictive input to cerebral arteries during vasospasm. Under the model conditions (incubation at 37 degrees C in an artificial cerebrospinal fluid), however, the… CONTINUE READING
