Cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is caused by lack of blood supply to the brain. The accumulation of toxic products such as reactive oxygen species (ROS) occurs on reperfusion, when the occlusion is removed. The resulting oxidative stress results in the initiation of pathways leading to necrotic and apoptotic cell death. Tadalafil (TAD) p...
