The Role of Adrenergic Activity and Histamine in Ischemic Brain Edema
It has been noted that irreversible membrane disturbance is caused by the peroxy radical, which is formed by the reaction of active oxygen (O2, OH, O2, H2O2) with unsaturated fatty acids, during the development of cerebral ischemia . In recent experiments the peroxidation reaction in the cell membrane has been proved biochemically to occur only after exposure to O2 .
