Inflammation in the immature brain: The role of Toll like receptors
Infection/inflammation and/or hypoxia-ischemia (HI) are major causes of perinatal brain injury. Toll-like receptors (TLRs), important components of innate immunity, have been shown to be involved in brain injury, both after ...
Developing brain and systemic inflammation: a "Toll-like" link with consequences
The developing brain is vulnerable to external insults, and perinatal brain injury (PBI) is a major cause of life-long neurological syndromes such as cerebral palsy. Currently, no pharmaceutical intervention is available. ...
The role of neonatal immunity in preterm brain injury
Perinatal brain injury is an important cause of mortality and morbidity and is associated with neurological disabilities such as those seen in cerebral palsy. Prematurity, especially in combination with very low birth ...
Inflammation and neuroprotective strategies in the immature brain after hypoxic-ischemic brain injury
Perinatal brain injury, as a result of hypoxia-ischemia (HI) or infection/HI, is a major cause of acute mortality and neurological morbidity in infants and children. The mechanisms of perinatal HI are not fully understood, ...
Inflammation and Cell Profileration Following Perinatal Brain Injury
Inflammation plays an important role in cerebral ischemic injury in the immature brain. The aim of the thesis was to investigate (1) the role of astrocyte activation and reactive gliosis in neonatal hypoxic-ischemic (HI) ...
