    Purpose: We studied the association between admission white blood cell (WBC) count and short term outcome in patients with acute cerebral infarction. Methods: 2808 patients with acute cerebral infarction were included in the study. WBC count and other variables were collected within the first 24...

    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...

    We tested whether significant leukocyte infiltration occurs in a mouse model of permanent cerebral ischemia. C57BL6/J male mice underwent either permanent (3 or 24 hours) or transient (1 or 2 hours+22- to 23-hour reperfusion) middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO). Using flow cytometry, we...

    Cerebral infarction (CI) and myocardial infarction (MI) share some common features, but there are other differences in risk factors. The aim of our study is to determine whether there are some significantly independent susceptibility markers for them. All consecutive patients between the ages of...
