Abstract

The current study used a rat middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) model with the aim to explore the effects of compound porcine cerebroside and ganglioside injection (CPCGI) on brain ischemia/reperfusion injury in rats. Improvement in the infarct‑side microcirculation and the overall recovery of neurological function were detected by triphenyltetrazolium chloride staining, laser speckle blood flow monitoring, latex perfusion, immunofluorescence and immunoblotting. The results revealed that administration of CPCGI for 7 consecutive days following ischemic stroke contributed to the recovery of neurological function and the reduction of cerebral infarct volume in rats. Blood flow monitoring results demonstrated that the administration of CPCGI effectively promoted cerebral blood flow following stroke, and contributed to the protection of the ischemic side blood vessels. In addition, CPCGI treatment increased the numbers of new blood vessels in the peripheral ischemic region, and upregulated the expression levels of vascular endothelial growth factor, angiopoietin 1 and its receptor TEK receptor tyrosine kinase, fibroblast growth factor and Wnt signaling pathway‑associated proteins. Taken together, the present results indicated that CPCGI improved the blood circulation and neurological function following cerebral ischemia/reperfusion in rats.
