The importance of brain temperature in alterations of the blood-brain barrier following cerebral ischemia.

Abstract

We studied whether small variations in intraischemic brain temperature influence the response of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to transient forebrain global ischemia. Six animal subgroups included rats whose brain temperature was maintained at 30, 33, 36 or 39 degrees C during 20 minutes (min) of 4-vessel occlusion. Control rats without ischemia had brain… (More)
