Inflammation and stroke

PD Dr. Eva Tolosa (AG Immunregulation)

According to animal models of ischemia/reperfusion, lymphocyte recruitment and activation play a role in the progression of cerebral damage after stroke, but the roles of specific lymphocyte subpopulations and cytokines are not clear yet, and very little is known about human stroke. In this project, we plan to use several approaches to study leukocyte infiltration and cytokine production in central nervous system of patients after stroke.
