Abstract

Lack of CCR5 increased the severity of brain injury following occlusion of the middle cerebral artery. This is of particular interest with respect to the relatively frequent occurrence of CCR5 deficiency in the human population (1-2% of the Caucasian population) and the advent of CCR5 inhibitors as novel drugs.
