MIF as a Path to Reduce Cell Death Following Stroke

A number of genes and proteins are turning out to be important in the processes of cell death that occur following a stroke or similar injury involving ischemia followed by reperfusion of tissue. It is the return of blood supply that leads directly to cell death, not the initial loss of blood supply. To pick one example from past research, absence of PHD1 has been shown to greatly reduce damage following stroke.
