Representative images of FITC-dextran leakage from rats treated with DHA or saline. FITC-dextran was intravenously injected at 72 h after MCAo and mosaic images at six bregma levels of entire hemisphere, cortical and subcortical areas were obtained from DHA- or vehicle-treated rats. Diffusive leakage of FITC-dextran was observed within infracted areas in the saline treated rat. In contrast, FITC-fluorescence was dramatically diminished by DHA treatment.
