Seizures were induced in rats by intraperitoneal injection of pentylenetetrazole (PTZ, 70 mg/kg), followed, 30 min later, by injection of [1-13C]glucose and [1,2-13C]acetate. Analyses of extracts from cortex, subcortex and cerebellum were performed using 13C magnetic resonance spectroscopy and HPLC. It could be shown that PTZ affected different brain(More)
This study was performed to analyze the effects of glutamate and the epileptogenic agent pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) on neuronal glucose metabolism. Cerebellar granule neurons were incubated for 2 h in medium containing 3 mM [U-(13)C]glucose, with and without 0.25 mM glutamate and/or 10 mM PTZ. In the presence of PTZ, decreased glucose consumption with(More)
The maintenance of pupil dilation is necessary for the success of scleral buckling procedures and in prophylactic transconjuctival cryopexy. To assess the miotic effect that is induced by cryotherapy and the ability of diclofenac sodium 0.1% (a potent prostaglandin synthetase inhibitor) to overcome such an effect, we conducted a randomized, masked and(More)
