ABSTRACT
The influence of long-term oral administration of buflomedil on regional cerebral blood flow was investigated in 10 patients with chronic cerebral infarction and mild to moderate mental deterioration. Patients were given 150 mg buflomedil three times daily for a period of eight weeks. Regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) was measured in patients before they began buflomedil treatment and during the last week of treatment. The interval of the rCBF measurements in the control subjects (n = 12) ranged from seven to forty-eight days. Mental function in the patients studied was evaluated by use of Hasegawa's simple intelligence scale for the aged and Zung's self-rating depression scale, before and during the last week of buflomedil treatment. The results showed a mean increase in rCBF of 10.5% ±12.1% in the patient group. The control group demonstrated virtually no change in rCBF measurements. Improvements in the mental function scores of the buflomedil-treated group were noted, and 5 of the 10 patients reported improvement in subjective symptoms.

    Cannabinoid CB2 Receptor (CB2) activation has been shown to have immunomodulatory properties without psychotropic effects. The hypothesis of this study is that selective CB2 agonist treatment can attenuate cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury. Selective CB2 agonists (O-3853, O-1966) were...

    Abstract We studied the microscopic features of 137 cases of human cerebral infarct. In each case, the age of the lesion was determined by measuring the time elapsed between initial clinical presentation and date of surgery or death. Multiple microscopic variables were analyzed on hematoxylin...
