Post-stroke Neuroinflammation | Astrocytes & Microglia

Posted by MD Biosciences on Jul 9, 2012 1:22:00 PM

Post-stroke neuroinflammation is a very complex phenomenon involving multiple resident and invading cell types at varying degrees of differentiation or activation - each expressing specific subsets of diffusable factors, receptors, cellular adhesion molecules and other markers - all of which is changing as time passes to create an initially neurotoxic and then finally neuroprotective environment. This inflammatory process in the penumbra offers a broad array of potential cellular and molecular targets with much wider therapeutic windows.

MMPs in ischemic conditions (stroke and myocardial infarct)

Posted by MD Biosciences on Jun 25, 2012 3:20:00 PM

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are zinc-dependent endopeptidases that function to degrade extracellular matrix. The turnover of ECM in organs is regulated by a balance by MMPs and their inhibitors (TIMPs) and the imbalance is implicated in a variety of diseases. Here we focus on the roles of MMPs in ischemia - particularly cerebral stroke and myocardial infarct.

iSchemia Cerebral Models | Stroke & Neurodegeneration

Posted by MD Biosciences on Apr 19, 2012 7:45:00 AM

Preclinical stroke models are critical to our understanding of the mechanisms and neurological deficits following human stroke. While reducing infarct size is a focus of stroke therapies, much attention is also on neuroprotective properties. Adding behavioral and functional outcome measures to preclinical studies is important to evaluate the impact on impairments that occur following stroke: learning, memory, motor function and sensory. There are many behavior tests, each having different sensitivities to deficits associated with particular areas of brain damage.
