Cerebral hypoxia is one of the main causes of cerebral injury. This study was conducted to investigate the potential protective effect of H(2)S in in vitro hypoxic models by subjecting SH-SY5Y cells to either oxygen-glucose deprivation or Na(2)S(2)O(4) (an oxygen scavenger) treatment. We found that treatment with NaHS (an H(2)S donor, 10-100 microM) 15 min(More)
Chronic intractable pain caused by postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) can be alleviated by intrathecal (i.t.) steroid therapy. We investigated the possibility that interleukin-6 (IL-6) release in an in vitro system could be a potential marker for evaluating the effectiveness of i.t. steroid therapy in PHN patients. We studied 32 patients who received a course of(More)
