Abstract

Three models of experimental cerebral oedema in rabbits are described, one producing vasogenic oedema with a cold lesion, the other producing a cytotoxic cerebral oedema with a metabolic inhibitor, 6-aminonicotinamide (6-ANA), and finally a model employing in the same animal both vasogenic and cytotoxic injuries. The following parameters were assessed: behaviour, EEG, intracranial pressure (ICP), cerebral elastance (Em), blood brain barrier integrity, brain water, electrolyte content, and volume change. Behaviour was normal in the cold lesion group, was abnormal following the administration of 6-ANA, and pronouncedly abnormal in animals with a combined lesion. Mean ICP (PaCO2 37 +/- 42 torr) in the control group was 2.7 +/- 2 torr, in the cold lesion group 8.4 +/-6, in the 6-ANA group it was 8.7 +/- 4, and in the combined lesion group 15.8 +/- 8 torr. Em for the control group was 2.6 +/- 1.3 torr, in the cold lesion group it was 5.6 +/- 4 torr, in the 6-ANA group it was 8.8 +/- 5 torr, and in the combined lesion group it was 8.0 +/- 4 torr. The 6-ANA group manifested oedema that involved primarily the grey matter. In the control animals grey matter water content was 79.99 +/- 0.8%, and in the 6-ANA group it was 81.73 +/- 0.9% (...Continue Reading

Blood Brain Barrier Chips

The blood brain barrier (BBB) is comprised of endothelial cells that regulate the influx and outflux of plasma concentrations. Lab-on-a-chip devices allow scientists to model diseases and mechanisms such as the passage of therapeutic antibodies across the BBB. Discover the latest research on BBB chips here.

Acute viral rhinopharyngitis

Acute viral rhinopharyngitis, also known as "common cold", is an acute, self-limiting viral infection of the upper respiratory tract involving the nose, sinuses, pharynx and larynx. Discover the latest research on acute viral rhinopharyngitis here.

Blood Brain Barrier

The blood brain barrier is a border that separates blood from cerebrospinal fluid. Discover the latest search on this highly selective semipermeable membrane here.
