BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to examine the putative protective effect of calcium channel blockers on hippocampal neurons in the experimental model of excitotoxic damage. METHODS Seven-day old primary dissociated cultures of rat hippocampal neural cells containing one of the following calcium channel blockers: cinnarizine, flunarizine or(More)
Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common chronic diseases in children. T regulatory cells (Tregs) modulate response to autoantigens and probably play a role in pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes (T1DM). The aim of the present study was the assessment of T regulatory cells including their percentages and expression of critical genes in these cells in(More)
UNLABELLED Despite the very high percentage of long-term remissions in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in children, some of them suffer from recurrence of the disease. New treatment modalities, e.g. effective geno- and immunotherapy are needed. The use of neoplasmatic cells to present tumor antigens is one of the approaches in cancer vaccines. ALL cells(More)
Recent research implies a role of decreased number and/or function of T-regulatory cells (Tregs) in low-grade inflammation associated with obesity and atherosclerosis. The enhancement of atheroprotective immunity by the expansion of Tregs could serve as a therapeutic strategy in obesity-related immunological disturbances. The aim of our study was an attempt(More)
Many experimental studies indicate that some antiepileptic drugs possess neuroprotective properties in varied models of neuronal injury. Levetiracetam is a second-generation antiepileptic drug with a novel mechanism of action. In the present study, we evaluated the putative neuroprotective effect of levetiracetam on primary hippocampal cultures at seven day(More)
Survival of cultured hippocampal neurons upon hypoxia: neuroprotective effect of gabapentin Przeżycie hodowli komórek nerwowych hipokampa w warunkach niedotlenienia: neuroprotekcyjny efekt gabapentyny ABSTRACT Introduction: Gabapentin (GBP) is a novel analogue of GABA used widely in the treatment of epileptic partial seizures and neuropathic pain.
