MCAO + U0126 - 6 h

MCAO + U0126 - 12 h

MMP-9 (%) ± SEM

100 ± 5.8

125 ± 8.0

101 ± 6.5

102 ± 4.7

109 ± 7.2

TIMP-1 (%) ± SEM

Values are percentages of the control value and are reported as mean ± standard error of the mean (SEM); n = 5–6, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, §P < 0.05, §§ P < 0.01. *Indicates a significant difference between the control group and the MCAO group; § indicates a significant difference between the MCAO group and the U0126-treated group.
