The experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) model resembles certain aspects of multiple sclerosis (MScl), with common features such as motor dysfunction, axonal degradation, and infiltration of T-cells. We studied the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) proteome in the EAE rat model to identify proteomic changes relevant for MScl disease pathology. EAE was(More)
Analysis of Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) samples holds great promise to diagnose neurological pathologies and gain insight into the molecular background of these pathologies. Proteomics and metabolomics methods provide invaluable information on the biomolecular content of CSF and thereby on the possible status of the central nervous system, including(More)
Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis (EAE) is the most commonly used animal model for Multiple Sclerosis (MScl). CSF metabolomics in an acute EAE rat model was investigated using targetted LC–MS and GC–MS. Acute EAE in Lewis rats was induced by co-injection of Myelin Basic Protein with Complete Freund’s Adjuvant. CSF samples were collected at two time(More)
To identify response biomarkers for pharmaceutical treatment of multiple sclerosis, we induced experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in rats and treated symptomatic animals with minocycline. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples were collected 14 days after EAE induction at the peak of neurological symptoms, and proteomics analysis was performed using(More)
To develop a new minimal-stress model for intranasal administration in freely moving rats and to evaluate in this model the brain distribution of acetaminophen following intranasal versus intravenous administration. Male Wistar rats received one intranasal cannula, an intra-cerebral microdialysis probe, and two blood cannulas for drug administration and(More)
Multiple Sclerosis (MScl) is a neurodegenerative disease of the CNS, associated with chronic neuroinflammation. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), being in closest interaction with CNS, was used to profile neuroinflammation to discover disease-specific markers. We used the commonly accepted animal model for the neuroinflammatory aspect of MScl: the experimental(More)
Analysis of metabolites in biofluids by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) after oximation and silylation is a key method in metabolomics. The GC–MS method was modified by a modified vial design and sample work-up procedure in order to make the method applicable to small volumes of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), i.e. 10 μL, with similar coverage(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to develop a mechanism-based pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) model to predict the time course of respiratory depression following administration of opioids in rats. The proposed model is based on receptor theory and aims at the separate characterization of biophase distribution and receptor(More)
The objective of this investigation was to characterize the pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) correlation of buprenorphine's active metabolite norbuprenorphine for the effect on respiration in rats. Following i.v. administration in rats (dose range 0.32-1.848 mg), the time course of the concentration in plasma was determined in conjunction with the(More)
