PPUS treatment reduced infarct volume after ischemic brain injury. (a) Representative photographs of coronal brain sections stained with 2,3,5-triphenyltetrazolium chloride in vehicle (Veh) and partially purified component of Uncaria sinensis (PPUS)-treated mice. Mice were intraperitoneally administered DMSO, 1 or 3 mg/kg PPUS 30 min before ischemic insult. White indicates the infarct area. (b) Quantification of the infarct volume 24 h after photothrombotic cortical ischemia. Data are expressed as means ± SEM (N = 5). * P < 0.05 when compared with the vehicle group (One-way ANOVA)
