In science:

Evaluation of blood-brain barrier (BBB) integrity The integrity of the BBB was investigated using Evans blue (EB) dye as a marker of albumin extravasation as reported previously (Belayev et al. 1996;Belayev et al. 1998;Asahi et al. 2001;Matsuo et al. 2001).
Post-ischaemic treatment with the cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor nimesulide reduces blood-brain barrier disruption and leukocyte infiltration following transient focal cerebral ischaemia in rats
Brain samples from ipsilateral and contralateral hemispheres were dissected out (cerebral cortex, striatum and rest of the hemisphere) for local measurement of EB extravasation.
Post-ischaemic treatment with the cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor nimesulide reduces blood-brain barrier disruption and leukocyte infiltration following transient focal cerebral ischaemia in rats
Unlike the cerebral cortex, in the subcortical areas, this initial EB leakage persisted till 6 h, showing a significant increase in EB extravasation as compared to the contralateral side (Fig. 2B).
Post-ischaemic treatment with the cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor nimesulide reduces blood-brain barrier disruption and leukocyte infiltration following transient focal cerebral ischaemia in rats
Nimesulide (12 mg/kg, i.p.), but not VAS, significantly (p<0.01) attenuated EB extravasation in the ischemic cortex even when the first treatment was delayed until 6 h after ischemia (Fig. 6).
Post-ischaemic treatment with the cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor nimesulide reduces blood-brain barrier disruption and leukocyte infiltration following transient focal cerebral ischaemia in rats
The biphasic opening of the BBB observed in the present study (Fig. 2) shows similarities to findings based on the assessment of EB dye and 3H-sucrose extravasation in models of focal cerebral ischemia in the rat (Belayev et al. 1996;Rosenberg et al. 1998;Huang et al. 1999).
