The distribution of peroxidase in the brain and spinal cord was examined after stab wounds, electroshock-induced convulsions, and experimental allergic encephalomyelitis. In all cases, the tracer was found to have moved from the vasculature into the parenchymatous extracellular spaces. The routes to that site may be via pinocytosis, between altered endothelial junctions or through diffusely-infiltrated endothelial cells.
