    ..Further, this study highlights both NOX2 and NOX4 as potential therapeutic targets in the treatment of iron-induced microglia-related inflammation and neurotoxicity. ..

    ..Overall, these data suggest that cognitive activity during FDG uptake affects the regional uptake pattern in the brain, increasing uptake at baseline and suppressing the effects of injury. ..

  4. Khayrullina G, Bermudez S, Byrnes K. Inhibition of NOX2 reduces locomotor impairment, inflammation, and oxidative stress after spinal cord injury. J Neuroinflammation. 2015;12:172 pubmed publisher
    ..NOX2 inhibition may therefore have true potential as a therapy after SCI. ..

    ..This acute and sub-acute uptake, which is dependent on cellular responses, may represent a therapeutic target. ..

    ..These data can contribute to the therapeutic targeting of NOX as a therapy for SCI. ..
