Neuroprotective effects of cilostazol are mediated by multiple mechanisms in a mouse model of permanent focal ischemia.


The phosphodiesterase (PDE) 3 inhibitor cilostazol, used as an anti-platelet drug, reportedly can also ameliorate ischemic brain injury. Here, we investigated the effects of cilostazol in a permanent focal ischemia mice model. Male Balb/c mice were subjected to permanent middle cerebral artery occlusion. Mice were then treated with either cilostazol (10 or… (More)
