In most cases, the etiology of stroke involves cerebral ischemia. Ischemia-induced changes in the brain tissue lead not only to its degeneration, but also to significant activation of cellular mechanisms which protect the affected cells from damage. One such mechanism is the expression of endogenous neuroprotective substances, for example pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide.
