Neutrophils do not contribute to infarction, oxidative stress, and NO synthase activity in severe brain ischemia.


Polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) were reported to contribute to ischemia-reperfusion-induced brain damage. The present work examined whether PMN infiltration is deleterious in a severe model of transient focal cerebral ischemia and in which part PMNs contribute to oxidative stress and nitric oxide (NO) production. A 20-min occlusion of the left middle… (More)
