BACKGROUND Cilostazol is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor that has anti-inflammatory potential in addition to vasodilator and antiplatelet effects. The aim of this study was to determine the influence of cilostazol on biochemical markers of oxidative damage, proinflammatory cytokine release, and spinal cord injury after transient aortic occlusion in rats.

OBJECTIVES Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the Central Nervous System by destructing myelin shield and also can affects the peripheral nervous system. Demyelination is acquired characteristics disease and appears with the degeneration of myelin which protects the axons. Cuprizone (CPZ) model is a toxic demyelination model. The purpose of(More)
BACKGROUND Protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) is a well-known photosensitizer that has great potential for use in photodynamic therapy (PDT). However, aggregation behavior of PpIX in neutral water makes it inappropriate for physiological studies. PpIX-loaded magnetoliposomes (MLs) were fabricated to increase PpIX biocompatibility. PpIX-loaded ML physical properties(More)
STUDY DESIGN Experimental laboratory investigation of spinal cord conductivity alterations in a rat model of ischemic spinal cord injury (SCI). OBJECTIVE To observe the epidural spinal cord stimulation-induced electromyography responses, and to investigate the possible alterations of spinal cord conduction velocity (SCCV) and compound muscle action(More)
