Table 1 Laboratory characteristics in age-matched non-diabetic control (Con), diabetic (DM), and insulin-treated diabetic (DMI) rats before and after FC I/R-injury

From: Insulin renders diabetic rats resistant to acute ischemic stroke by arresting nitric oxide reaction with superoxide to form peroxynitrite
