Etanercept decreased FPI-induced increases in the number of co-localization of microglia and TNF-α specific marker cells in ischemic cortical regions. Representative panel staining 72 h after sham operation or FPI, respectively for (A) a sham operation rat, (B) a FPI+saline rat and (C) a FPI+etanercept rat. (D) The FPI+saline group (▤) showed a significant increase in the number of co-localization of microglia and TNF-α specific marker cells in the ischemic cortex 72 h after FPI compared with the sham controls (■) (*P < 0.01). The FPI+etanercept group showed a significant decrease in the number of co-localization of microglia and TNF-α specific marker cells (▩) compared with the FPI+saline group (▤) (+P < 0.01). Each column and bar is the mean ± SD of eight rats per group.
