The protective effect of etifoxine is limited within 12 h after MCAO and reperfusion. C57BL/6 mice were given etifoxine (50 mg/kg) or vehicle by daily i.p. injection, starting from 6 or 12 h after MCAO and during reperfusion until the end of experiments. At 72 h after MCAO and reperfusion, neurodeficits and infarct volume were assessed. a Quantification of Neurological Severity Score (mNSS) of mice receiving etifoxine or vehicle control at the indicated time after MCAO and reperfusion. b TTC-stained brain slices from mice receiving etifoxine or vehicle at 6 and 12 h post MCAO and during reperfusion. c Quantification of infarct volume in mice receiving etifoxine or vehicle control at indicated time points after MCAO and reperfusion. Data were presented as mean ± SEM. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, n = 8 per group
