Blockade of bradykinin receptor B1 reduces brain injury in a mouse model of neurotrauma

F. Raslan, M. Austinat, T. Schwarz, C. Kleinschnitz & A.L. Sirén
Objective: Development of brain edema worsens outcome after head injury while its treatment options remain limited. Kinins are proinflammatory and vasoactive peptides that are released during tissue injury and may contribute to neuronal damage, inflammation and edema formation after head injury by acting[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
