PPUS improved neurological and motor function after ischemic brain injury. Mice were intraperitoneally administered DMSO, 1 or 3 mg/kg partially purified component of Uncaria sinensis (PPUS) 30 min before ischemic insult. Quantification of (a) neurological deficit and (b) motor deficit were evaluated 24 h after photothrombotic cortical ischemia in a blinded fashion. Vestibule-motor function was assessed by a wire grip test. Data are expressed as means ± SEM (N = 5). * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01 compared with the vehicle group (One-way ANOVA)
