Effect of NaHS treatment on the T2 value.
(A) The mean T2 values were measured in the ipsilateral (ischemic core [white square] and peri-infarct [red square]) and contralateral regions on serial T2 maps at baseline and at 3, 9, and 24 h after ischemia. (B, C) The rT2 of the ischemic (B) core and (C) peri-infarct regions were plotted against time. Data are presented as mean ± standard deviation (n = 8 rats in each group). * P < 0.001 vs. the control group, # P < 0.001 vs. the NaHS-30 group.
