Periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) is the main cause of neurologic handicap in pre-term infants. The understanding of cellular and molecular mechanisms leading to white matter damage is critical for development of innovative therapeutic strategies for PVL. The pathogenesis of PVL remains unclear but possibly involves glutamate excitotoxicity as an important(More)
Activity-dependent neurotrophic factor (ADNF) is a newly identified compound that prevents in vitro neuronal death when present in fentomolar concentrations. ADNF-14, a 14 amino acid peptide derived from ADNF, has the same effects on growth as the parent molecule. However, the transduction pathways and target cells for these highly potent trophic factors(More)
