Rabbits with brain injuries hop again after treatment with dendrimers.

What's with the "again"? They were just born. They never hopped in the first place. It's more interesting because NAC is an antidote to Tylenol poisoning, aka acetomenophen poisoning, while acetomenophen is not an anti-inflammatory drug.

Furthermore, because researchers have recently found that microglia have a role in other neurological ailments, such as multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease2, the finding could be applied in other contexts. Already, dendrimers are being used in studies on the treatment of diseases ranging from genital herpes to cancer. “People told us not to bother with this experiment because no one thought you could release drugs directly into immune cells in the brain,” says Kannan, who reported previously that dendrimers injected into rats' eyes targeted microglia3. “But somehow,” he says “these dendrimers are special.
The words that are music to the research lab director’s ears: “Huh!! That’s funny!"
