Cerebral acidic metabolites and penicillin are organic anions which can be carried by active transport into capillaries of the central nervous system (CNS). However, it is generally believed that these metabolites are mainly delivered from CNS to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and eliminated by CSF circulation over cortex and its absorption into dural venous(More)
After application of [3H]benzylpenicillin ([3H]BP) in lateral brain ventricle in dogs, the distribution of [3H]BP to contralateral ventricle and cisterna magna was much higher when its active transport from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was blocked by probenecid than under control conditions. Analysis of [3H]BP concentrations in both lateral ventricles and(More)
Acute osmolar loading of cerebrospinal fluid within one lateral ventricle of dogs was examined as a cause of water extraction from the bloodstream and an increase in intracranial pressure. We have shown that a certain amount of (3)H₂O from the bloodstream enters osmotically loaded cerebrospinal fluid significantly faster, hence causing a significant(More)
