Tolerance to cerebral ischemia can be induced by exposure to brief ischemia or pharmacological agents including the Toll-like receptor (TLR) agonists, a phenomenon known as the ischemic preconditioning (IPC). Established evidence suggests that innate immune pathways such as TLRs and type 1 interferon (IFN) signaling are involved in IPC-mediated neuroprotection. Although it is well known that tolerance to ischemia or the effect of IPC declines with age and pathological conditions including metabo...
