EB content in rats. Tissue EB content was measured at 6, 24 and 72 h after MCAo in cortex, subcortex, ipsilateral hemisphere and whole brain in saline- and DHA-treated rats. Treatments were given at 1 h after 2 h of MCAo. EB extravasation was decreased by DHA treatment compared to the corresponding saline group. Values are mean ± SEM; n = 8-12 rats per group. *Significantly different from corresponding saline group (p < 0.05, repeated measures ANOVA followed by Bonferroni tests).
