The highly selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor DFU is neuroprotective when given several hours after transient cerebral ischemia in gerbils
In the light of all these evidences, the present study was conducted to assess whether pyruvate would show neuroprotective efficacy on the cerebral infarction induced by permanent middle cerebral artery occlusion (pMCAO), a clinically-relevant model of stroke.

Arteriotomy was performed in the CCA approximately 3 mm proximal to the bifurcation and a 3-0 monofilament nylon suture, whose tip had been rounded by being heated near a flame was introduced into the internal carotid artery (ICA) until a mild resistance was felt (18-19 mm).
