چکیده مقاله:

Objective(s): Cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) causes brain inflammation that ultimately causes long time brain function disturbances. We aimed to evaluate the effect of ellagic acid (EA) on anxiety, depression, locomotion behaviors, blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability, brain edema, and inflammation in male rats with cerebral I/R. Materials and Methods: Sixty male Wistar rats (250-300 g) divided into 6 groups randomly with 10 in each: 1) Sham+Veh; rats submitted to the surgery without any I/R and received vehicle (10% DMSO in normal saline 5 ml/kg, gavages). 2) I/R+Veh; 3-5) I/R+EA; I/R rats received 50, 75 and 100 EA mg/kg, by gavages 3 times daily for one week. The cerebral I/R injury was induced by clamping the bilateral common carotid arteries for 20 minutes followed by reperfusion. Behaviors were tested one week after treatment, and brain tissue cytokines were measured by special ELISA kits. Results: Cerebral I/R disrupted BBB function (P<0.001), increased brain water content (P<0.01), anxiety-like (P<0.001), depression-like (P<0.001) behaviors and cytokines in the brain tissue (P<0.001), while decreased locomotion and exploratory behaviors significantly (PConclusion: The results suggest that EA could be a potential therapeutic agent against cerebral I/R, possibly through its intertwined anti-inflammatory effects. Further research is required to investigate the involved mechanisms in details.

Candesartan Attenuates Ischemic Brain Edema and Protects the Blood–Brain Barrier Integrity from Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury in Rats

Background: Angiotensin II (Ang II) has an important role on cerebral microcirculation however, its direct roles in terms of ischemic brain edema need to be clarified. This study evaluated the role of central Ang II by using candesartan, as an AT1 receptor blocker, in the brain edema formation and blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption caused by ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injuries in rat. Methods...

Ulinastatin attenuates cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury in rats.

UNLABELLED To investigate the effects of Ulinastatin (UTI) in cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury in rats and whether this effect might be related to Aquaporin 4 (AQP4), one hundred and eighty adult male Sprague Dawley (SD) rats, weighing 230-280 g, were randomly divided into 3 groups: sham (S) group, IR group and UTI (U) group. Every group was further divided into 3 sub-groups: 6 h group...

Etanercept Attenuates Myocardial Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury by Decreasing Inflammation and Oxidative Stress

The protective role of etanercept in myocardial ischemia/reperfusion is not well understood. The aim of this study was to investigate whether etanercept modulates neutrophil accumulation, TNF-α induction and oxidative stress in an ischemia/reperfusion injured rat heart model. Rats were randomly exposed to sham operation, myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (MI/R) alone, MI/R+ etanercept. The result...

Neuroprotective Effects of Chrysin Mediated by Estrogenic Receptors Following Cerebral Ischemia and Reperfusion in Male Rats

Introduction: Ischemic stroke is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Neuroprotective strategies were reported to attenuate cognitive deficits after ischemic incidents. Here we studied the neuroprotective potential of chrysin in a rat model of cerebral Ischemia/Reperfusion (I/R) in the presence or absence of Estrogen Receptors (ERs). Methods: Adult male Wistar rats w...

Sildenafil attenuates renal ischemia reperfusion injury by decreasing leukocyte infiltration.

The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of sildenafil citrate (SC) on renal ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury in a rat model. Forty eight male Wistar albino rats were randomly assigned into six groups: sham, ischemia, I/R, SC+sham, SC+ischemia and SC+I/R. In the I/R groups, the right kidney was removed and the artery and vein of the left kidney were clamped for 45 min followed by re...
