Regulatory T (T reg ) cells protect the brain after stroke. Experiments by Liesz et al. [57] show that Treg cells prevent delayed lesion expansion in an IL-10-dependent manner in a mouse model of acute ischemic stroke. They also reduce the proinflammatory cytokine levels during the early postischemic inflammatory phase. Injection of IL-10 in the brain reduces infarct volume.
