SUMMARY  Aims: The aims of this study were to find out whether kallikrein could induce angiogenesis and affect the cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in the early period after cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (CI/R). Methods: The adenovirus carried human tissue kallikrein (HTK) gene was administrated into the periinfarction region after CI/R. At 12, 24, and 72 h after treatments, neurological deficits were evaluated; expression of HTK and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) were detected by immunohistochemistry staining; the infarction volume was measured; and rCBF was examined by( 14) C-iodoantipyrine microtracing technique. Results: The expression of VEGF was enhanced significantly in pAdCMV-HTK group than controls over all time points (P < 0.05). Furthermore, the rCBF in pAdCMV-HTK group increased markedly than controls at 24 and 72 h after treatment (P < 0.05), and the improved neurological deficit was accompanied by reduced infarction volume in pAdCMV-HTK group 24 and 72 h posttreatment. Conclusion: In the early period after CI/R, kallikrein could induce the angiogenesis and improve rCBF in periinfarction region, and further reduce the infarction volume and improve the neurological deficits.
