Usage


In science:

Evans blue (2% in saline, 4 mL/kg) was injected to rats via the tail vein under diethyl ether anesthesia at different times (time course experiment) or at 46 h after the onset of MCAO (for evaluating the effect of nimesulide and valeryl salicylate; see below Section ‘Treatment groups and drug administration’).
Post-ischaemic treatment with the cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor nimesulide reduces blood-brain barrier disruption and leukocyte infiltration following transient focal cerebral ischaemia in rats
Briefly, rats were anesthetized with diethyl ether and perfused transcardially with ice-cold physiological saline to flush all blood components from the vasculature.
