The ferric iron chelator 2,2′-dipyridyl attenuates basilar artery vasospasm and improves neurological function after subarachnoid hemorrhage in rabbits

Abstract

We investigated the efficacy of the ferrous iron (Fe2+) chelator 2,2′-dipyridyl (DP) to attenuate cerebral vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Thirty-six New Zealand white rabbits were randomly assigned to four groups: untreated control, SAH, SAH + dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) vehicle, and SAH + DP. SAH was induced by injection of autologous blood… (More)
