The aim of this study was to investigate the time course and the correlation of neuron-specific enolase (NSE) serum levels to the severity of traumatic brain injury in rats. Sixty-five male Wistar rats were subjected to severe cortical impact injury (100 PSI, 2 mm deformation). Blood samples were drawn directly after trauma and after 1, 6, 12, 24, and 48 h in the trauma group. In the sham operated levels animals samples were drawn directly after craniotomy and after 6 and 48 h. Additionally… CONTINUE READING
