Apoptosis and proliferation of dentate gyrus neurons after single and intermittent limbic seizures.
Neuronal apoptosis was observed in the rat dentate gyrus in two experimental models of human limbic epilepsy. Five hours after one hippocampal kindling stimulation, a marked increase of in situExpand

Cyclosporine before PCI in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction.
BACKGROUND Experimental and clinical evidence suggests that cyclosporine may attenuate reperfusion injury and reduce myocardial infarct size. We aimed to test whether cyclosporine would improveExpand

Regulation of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor Gene Expression after Transient Middle Cerebral Artery Occlusion with and without Brain Damage
Levels of mRNA for c-fos, nerve growth factor (NGF), brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), neurotrophin-3 (NT-3), TrkB, and TrkC were studied using in situ hybridization in the rat brain atExpand

Suppressed Epileptogenesis in BDNF Mutant Mice
Kindling is an animal model of epilepsy in which repeated electrical stimulations lead to progressive and permanent amplification of seizure activity, culminating in generalized convulsions. EachExpand

Temporal increase of platelet mitochondrial respiration is negatively associated with clinical outcome in patients with sepsis
IntroductionMitochondrial dysfunction has been suggested as a contributing factor to the pathogenesis of sepsis-induced multiple organ failure. Also, restoration of mitochondrial function, known asExpand

Involvement of mitochondrial K+ release and cellular efflux in ischemic and apoptotic neuronal death
We measured and manipulated intracellular potassium (K+) fluxes in cultured hippocampal neurons in an effort to understand the involvement of K+ in neuronal death under conditions of ischemia andExpand

Patients with sepsis exhibit increased mitochondrial respiratory capacity in peripheral blood immune cells
IntroductionIn sepsis, mitochondria have been associated with both initial dysfunction and subsequent upregulation (biogenesis). However, the evolvement of mitochondrial function in sepsis over timeExpand

Dynamic changes of brain-derived neurotrophic factor protein levels in the rat forebrain after single and recurring kindling-induced seizures
Regional levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor protein were measured in the rat brain using enzyme immunoassay following seizures evoked by hippocampal kindling stimulations. One stimulation,Expand

Flow cytometric analysis of mitochondria from CA1 and CA3 regions of rat hippocampus reveals differences in permeability transition pore activation
Mitochondria are important in the pathophysiology of several neurodegenerative diseases, and mitochondrial production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), membrane depolarization, permeability changesExpand

Calcium-induced generation of reactive oxygen species in brain mitochondria is mediated by permeability transition.
Mitochondrial uptake of calcium in excitotoxicity is associated with subsequent increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation and delayed cellular calcium deregulation in ischemic andExpand
