Methyl-isobutyl amiloride is neuroprotective in a perinatal asphyxia modelIn a translational piglet hypoxia-ischemia model with real time monitoring and intensive care support on par with the clinic, we demonstrate neuroprotection with methyl isobutyl amiloride (MIA), a N+/H+ exchanger (NHE) inhibitor, administered 10 mins after global cerebral hypoxia-ischemia. Correlating with improved cerebral energy metabolism on the proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy biomarker (eg. N acetyl aspartate (NAA)/Creatine), we saw a reduction in histological parameters of brain damage.
