The influence of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment on the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and Na(+),K(+)-ATPase was determined during different time periods of reperfusion in rats exposed to global cerebral ischemia. Ischemic animals were either sacrificed or exposed to the first HBO treatment 2, 24, 48 or 168 h after ischemic insult (for SOD(More)
Free radicals mediated damage of phospholipids, proteins and nucleic acids results in subsequent neuronal degeneration and cell loss. Aim of this study was to evaluate the existence of lipid and protein oxidative damage and the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) in various rat brain structures 24 h after lateral(More)
Neuroprotective actions of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPARγ) agonists have been observed in various animal models of the brain injuries. In this study we examined the effects of a single dose of pioglitazone on oxidative and inflammatory parameters as well as on neurodegeneration and the edema formation in the rat parietal cortex(More)
The effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment on the Na+,K+ -ATPase and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activities were examined in the optic nerves of the rats exposed to global cerebral ischemia. Animals were exposed to global cerebral ischemia of 20-min duration and were either sacrificed or exposed to the first HBO treatment immediately, 0.5, 1, 2, 6, 24,(More)
The influence of 20 min global cerebral ischemia on the free arachidonic acid (FAA) level and Na+,K+-ATPase activity in the rat hippocampus at different time points after ischemia was examined. In addition, the effect of MK-801 on mentioned parameters was studied. Animals were exposed to 20 min global cerebral ischemia and were sacrificed immediately, 0.5,(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the influence of global cerebral ischemia on the activation of extracellular-regulated kinases (ERK) and c-Jun N-terminal kinases (JNK) in optic nerves of rats exposed to different reperfusion periods. MATERIALS AND METHODS Transient global cerebral ischemia (20-min duration) was induced by the four-vessel occlusion method. After(More)
