A: Measurements of the brain damage (% of total volume) showed a significant. Decrease in infarct size on the ischemic side in animals treated with U0126 starting at 0 h (11.8 ± 2 %**) and 6 h (14.6 ± 3 %*) after MCAO as compared to the control group (24.8 ± 2 %) and treated after 12 h (20.3 ± 1 %)(*P < 0.05 ** P < 0.01). B: Analysis of the edema (% of total brain volume) showing no significant change in the U0126 treated groups (0 h; 1.05 ± 0.02, 6 h; 0.98 ± 0.02 and 12 h; 1.02 ± 0.04) with the control rats (1.01 ± 0.03). Values are the mean ± s. e. m. and n = 6–7.
