Inhibitory effect of MCI-186, a free radical scavenger, on cerebral ischemia following rat middle cerebral artery occlusion.


1. In this study, we investigated the effect of a radical scavenger, MCI-186 (3-methyl-1-phenyl-2-pyrazolin-5-one), on cerebral damage induced by rat middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion, and further measured the hydroxyl radical level at the ischemic border zone using a microdialysis technique. 2. MCI-186, at a dose of 3 mg/kg per 30 min, was… (More)
