Figure 1: Cinnamophilin reduced brain infarction and swelling at 3 days after transient focal cerebral ischemia. Rats received either CINN (80 mg/ kg) or vehicle (the same volume of HPCD) at 2 hours after MCA occlusion. (A) Representative hematoxylin and eosin stained sections from the vehicleinjected and the CINN-treated animals. (B) CINN significantly decreased brain infarction volumes and swelling and reduced (C) individual cortical and striatal lesion sizes. Data are presented as mean ± standard deviation (S. D.), and n=6 per group. *P<0.05 compared with the vehicle-injected controls by using the unpaired Student’s t test.
