Inhibitory effects of chiral 3-n-butylphthalide on inflammation following focal ischemic brain injury in rats.

AIM To evaluate the degree of neutrophil infiltration into ischemic tissue after transient focal cerebral ischemia, and to examine the effects of chiral 3-n-butylphthalide (NBP) on this inflammatory process. METHODS After a 24-h reperfusion following transient cerebral ischemia, two different techniques, histologic analysis and modified myeloperoxidase… CONTINUE READING
