Electroacupuncture Attenuates Cerebral Ischemia and Reperfusion Injury in Middle Cerebral Artery Occlusion of Rat via Modulation of Apoptosis, Inflammation, Oxidative Stress, and Excitotoxicity

Figure 2

Observation of infarction volume: (a) the representative 2,3,5-triphenyltetrazolium chloride (TTC) staining ( animals per group), ischemic area being white and intact area stained red. (b) Percentage of infarct volume of the cerebral infarct in the rat brain ( animals per group). Brain tissues displayed obvious infarction in MCAO group compared to Sham-operated group. Both EA pretreatment and EA treatment groups showed a tendency of decrease in infarction volume compared to MCAO group. Results are expressed as mean ± SEM. versus MCAO.
