NEUROINFLAMMATION IN THE NEONATE PIGLET MODEL

20 June 2017 12:00pm1:00pm
In this talk I will present data on the neuro-inflammatory response in both our pre-clinical piglet model of HI as well as our intrauterine growth restricted (IUGR) model. With this data we will determine a temporal profile of inflammatory mediators in order to understand its association with brain injury in the neonate following a HI event.
