Protective effect of hydroxysafflor yellow A alone or in combination with acetylglutamine on cerebral ischemia reperfusion injury in rat: A PET study using 18F-fuorodeoxyglucose.

Hydroxysafflor yellow A (HSYA) and acetylglutamine (NAG) are extensively applied in the treatment of brain injury. In this study, we investigated the neuroprotective effect and underlying mechanism of HSYA alone or together with NAG using a rat model of cerebral ischemia reperfusion injury. Male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats (n = 5) were intraperitoneally… CONTINUE READING
