1) TA3090 dilates pial arteries and increases cerebral blood flow in normal brain regions in a dose-response fashion; 2) in ischemic regions compared with those in untreated animals, TA3090 results in a lesser reduction of cerebral blood flow during ischemia and in a lesser degree of hyperemia during reperfusion; 3) TA3090 is associated with less pial artery dilatation during ischemia, presumably due to improved collateral flow; and 4) the improved hemodynamic state with TA3090 is associated with significant reduction of cerebral edema and infarct size.
