High-mobility group box 1: an amplifier of stem and progenitor cell activity after stroke.
 

Author(s): Kazuhide Hayakawa, Loc-Duyen D Pham, Ken Arai, Eng H Lo

Journal: Acta Neurochir. Suppl.. 2013 ;118():31-8.

 

Stroke induces a highly complex web of pathophysiology that usually leads to serious long-term -disability. Molecules from the damage-associated molecular pattern (DAMP) family immediately increase after stroke. DAMPs are known to cause massive inflammation and brain damage. Thus, ...
