Neuroprotective effect of pioglitazone on acute phase changes induced by partial global cerebral ischemia in mice.

Present study was carried out to investigate the possible neuroprotective effect of pioglitazone, an antidiabetic agent, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma) agonist on acute phase changes in mice model of cerebral ischemia induced by Bilateral Common Carotid artery Occlusion (BCCAO). BCCAO model was used to induce partial global… (More)
