Delayed cerebral ischemia in subarachnoid hemorrhage - Towards a
novel pharmacological intervention
Neuroinflammatory involvement in subarachnoid hemorrhage and the development of DCIWe aim to investigate the temporal aspect of neuroinflammation and mitochondrial dysfunction brains tissue and vasculature in subarachnoid hemorrhage using an animal model. Furthermore we seek to investigate pharmacological intervention and its impact on the development of delayed cerebral ischemia, behavior and overall survivalJesper Peter Bömers, MDOngoing.
