Pharmacology and toxicology
Non-clinical pharmacodynamics test results show that this product can reduce the stroke score, mortality and cerebral infarct range in a rat model of focal cerebral ischemia induced by a suppository method. It can promote the recovery of electroencephalogram potential amplitude and decrease brain water content in gerbils with cerebral ischemia-reperfusion. It can reduce the brain wet weight, brain index and brain water content in the rat model of four-vessel occlusion cerebral ischemia and reperfusion, and reduce the damage of neurons in hippocampal CA1 area (increasing the density of neurons in this area).
