Postnatal CDPPB treatment decreased [11C]PBR accumulation in saline-exposed offspring, but not in offspring prenatally exposed to LPS.
Postnatal CDPPB treatment decreased the accumulation of [11C]PBR in the olfactory bulb, cerebellum, hippocampus, striatum, hypothalamus and the whole brain of the offspring prenatally exposed to saline solution (A). However, [11C]PBR accumulation did not change in any quantified brain region of the LPS-exposed offspring (B). Axial PET images of [11C]PBR accumulation at the midbrain level illustrate the decreased accumulation after CDPPB treatment in the prenatally saline-exposed offspring while there is no significant change in the brain of CDPPB treated mice prenatally exposed to LPS (C). Values are expressed as mean ± SEM.
