  "abstract": "<p>Occlusion of the middle cerebral artery (MCAo) is among the most common causes of ischemic<br>\nstroke in humans. Cerebral ischemia leads to brain lesions existing of an irreversibly injured core<br>\nand an ischemic boundary zone, the penumbra, containing damaged but potentially salvageable<br>\ntissue. Using a transient occlusion (30 min) of the middle cerebral artery (tMCAo) mouse model in<br>\nthis cross-institutional study we investigated the neurorestorative efficacy of a dietary approach<br>\n(Fortasyn) comprising docosahexaenoic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, uridine, choline,<br>\nphospholipids, folic acid, vitamins B12, B6, C, and E, and selenium as therapeutic approach to<br>\ncounteract neuroinflammation and impairments of cerebral (structural+functional) connectivity,<br>\ncerebral blood flow (CBF), and motor function. Male adult C57BL/6j mice were subjected to right<br>\ntMCAo using the intraluminal filament model. Following tMCAo, animals were either maintained<br>\non Control diet or switched to the multicomponent Fortasyn diet. At several time points after<br>\ntMCAo, behavioral tests, and MRI and PET scanning were conducted to identify the impact of the<br>\nmulticomponent diet on the elicited neuroinflammatory response, loss of cerebral connectivity,<br>\nand the resulting impairment of motor function after experimental stroke. Mice on the<br>\nmulticomponent diet showed decreased neuroinflammation, improved functional and structural<br>\nconnectivity, beneficial effect on CBF, and also improved motor function after tMCAo. Our<br>\npresent data show that this specific dietary intervention may have beneficial effects</p>",
