Hyperglycemia is a known exacerbating factor in ischemic stroke; however, most information is limited to pre-ischemic hyperglycemia, while little is known about post-ischemic hyperglycemia. In addition, it has been clinically reported that hyperglycemia can develop after stroke, but the detailed mechanisms underlying this are unknown. Here, we focused on the relationship between post-ischemic hyperglycemia and the development of neuronal damage. In particular, we investigated the time course of… CONTINUE READING
