BACKGROUND Excitotoxic insults such as stroke may induce release of fatty acid ethanolamides (FAEs), contributing to the downstream events in the ischemic cascade. We therefore studied release of FAEs such as anandamide, palmitylethanolamide (PEA), and oleylethanolamide (OEA) in the brain of a patient suffering from malignant hemispheric infarction treated with hypothermia. CASE DESCRIPTION A patient with life-threatening hemispheric stroke was treated with moderate hypothermia (33 degrees C… CONTINUE READING
