Impact of age on the chronic inflammatory response to stroke in C57BL/6 mice. a Comparison of the levels of 25 cytokines and chemokines in infarcts at the stage of liquefactive necrosis dissected from 3-month old and 18-month old C57BL/6 mice at 7 weeks post-stroke. Data are expressed as a fold-change relative to age matched sham control values. Data represent mean ± SEM. There is no significant difference in the overall cytokine and chemokine profile at the stage of liquefactive necrosis between 3-month old and 18-month old mice by two-way ANOVA. Cytokines and chemokines that are significantly different between the 3-month old and 18-month old mice corrected for multiple comparisons are denoted by an asterisk (*p < 0.05 versus 3-month old mice). b Representative images of CD3+ T-lymphocytes, B220+ B-lymphocytes, and CD68+ macrophages/microglia in the infarcts of 3-month old and 18-month old C57BL/6 mice at 7 weeks post-stroke. Scale bar, 50 μm. Red dotted lines indicate locations of the glial scar in each image. c Quantification of CD3+ T-lymphocyte and B220+ B-lymphocyte infiltration into the mouse infarcts
