Figure 5

Effects of human AM/AMBP-1 on morphologic photomicrography of the brain after stroke. (A) Photomicrography of a coronal section at the bregma level from a sham-operated rat. (B) Photomicrography of the penumbra area at a coronal section at the bregma level from a stroke rat at 24 h after permanent MCAO treated with human albumin (Vehicle). Note that neuronal shrinkage and damage were present at 24 h after MCAO. (C) Photomicrography of the penumbra area at a coronal section at the bregma level from a stroke rat at 24 h after MCAO treated with human AM/AMBP-1 (AM/AMBP-1). Original magnification x200. Scale bar = 50 ┬Ám.
