A major limitation in thrombolysis for acute ischemic stroke is the restricted time window for safe and effective therapy. Any method that can extend the reperfusion time window would be important. In this study, we show that normobaric hyperoxia extends the time window for effective reperfusion from 1 to 3 hours in rats subjected to focal cerebral ischemia. Normobaric hyperoxia did not increase cellular markers of superoxide generation or brain levels of matrix metalloproteinase-9. Normobaric… CONTINUE READING
