The primary goal of current ischemic stroke treatment is quickly restoring blood perfusion. Recanalization is linked to improved neurological outcomes . Resulting tissue necrosis, however, following a stroke has two causes: 1) ischemic injury and 2) reperfusion injury. Therefore, development of neuroprotective agents specifically beneficial against reperfusion injury are required.
