Fig. 1. Curcumin improves brain HI damage in neonatal rats (n = 12 per group). (A) HI damage in brain tissues of the sham, HI, and HI + CUR groups by TUNEL staining. (B) Neurological deficits evaluated in the sham, HI, and HI + CUR groups by Longa’s score at 24 h and 72 h after treatment. (C) Histopathological changes of brain tissues in the sham, HI, and HI + CUR groups by H&E staining (×400). (D) Cell apoptosis in brain tissues of the sham, HI, and HI + CUR groups by TUNEL staining (×400). (E) Early and late apoptotic in brain tissues of the sham, HI, and HI + CUR groups by flow cytometry. HI, hypoxic-ischemic injury; CUR, curcumin. **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001 vs. sham group; ##p < 0.01 vs. HI group.
