Evans blue extravasation was attenuated in PPUS-treated mice after ischemic brain injury. (a) Representative photographs of Evans blue leakage in coronal section of the brain in vehicle (Veh)- and partially purified component of Uncaria sinensis (PPUS)-treated mice 24 h after photothrombotic cortical ischemia. Mice were intraperitoneally administered DMSO or 1 mg/kg PPUS 30 min before ischemic insult. Blue area shows extravasated Evans blue, indicating BBB disruption. (b) Quantitative analysis of Evans blue leakage. Data are expressed as means ± SEM (N = 5). ** P < 0.01 compared with the vehicle group (One-way ANOVA)
