BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Previously we demonstrated that focal cerebral ischemia results in an increased expression of several cytokines/chemokines that precede the infiltration of leukocytes into the ischemic cortex after focal stroke induced by occlusion of the middle cerebral artery (MCAO). Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) is a potent chemoattractant specific for monocytes. The aim of the present study was to examine whether MCP-1 messenger RNA (mRNA) is expressed in ischemic brain… CONTINUE READING
