Progesterone is neuroprotective after transient middle cerebral artery occlusion in male rats.

Abstract

Progesterone (PROG) is a neurosteroid, possessing a variety of functions in the central nervous system. Exogenous PROG has been shown to reduce secondary neuronal loss in conjunction with attenuated brain edema after cerebral contusion and to reduce brain edema after focal cerebral ischemia. In the present study, we assessed the neuroprotective potential of… (More)
