Postischemic cerebral inflammation has been reported to contribute to ischemic brain damage. During inflammation, constituents of the extracellular matrix such as fibronectin and laminin are recognized by certain integrins or proteoglycans and play an important role in the cell adhesion process. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of… CONTINUE READING
