Systemic infection often accompanies or precedes acute brain injury, but it remains unclear how the systemic response contributes to outcome. To examine this problem we have microinjected recombinant interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta), a cytokine associated with acute brain injury, into the rat brain parenchyma and either preceded or followed this challenge with the intravenous injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS), which mimics systemic inflammatory response syndrome. The microinjection of IL-1bet...Expand abstract
