The involvement of mitochondrial dysfunction promoting neurodegenerative diseases, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), has been suggested. Histopathological and biochemical mitochondrial abnormalities have been reported in both sporadic and familial patients and suggest the contention that mitochondria may play a key role promoting ALS.

Earlier studies indicated that sublethal ischemic insults separated by many hours may "precondition" and, thereby, protect tissues from subsequent insults. In Wistar rats, we examined the hypothesis tht ischemic preconditioning (IPC) can improve histopathological outcome even if the "conditioning" and "test" ischemic insults are separated by only 30 min.(More)
The effect of morphine-3-glucuronide (M3G) on noxious stimulus-evoked Fos protein-like immunoreactivity in the rat spinal cord were assessed by ABC method. It was found that a dose-dependent increase of Fos-like immunoreactive neurons could be induced by M3G intrathecal injection followed by formaline injection into hindpaw. With high dosage M3G (1.1 x(More)
