Research overview:
In terms of the hosts defense mechanism with this non-specific inflammation, the author tested the hypothesis that the blood clot extravasated into the subarachnoid space might be regarded as a foreign material, and that the foreign-body reaction might be involved in the pathogenesis of delayed cerebral vasospasm. Along with this thought, the author designed the intrathecal injection of talc (a crystallized hydrous magnesium silicate) as non-specific inflammation around the special artery (basilar artery) in vivo.
