Recently we investigated the mechanisms mediating the transport of valproic acid (VPA) between blood and brain. In one study efflux of valproic acid (VPA) from rabbit brain was inhibited by probenecid. Efflux of VPA decreased when probenecid was given intravenously but not when probenecid was given by ventriculocisternal (VC) perfusion indicating that the(More)
Previous experiments suggest the primary route of valproic acid (VPA) removal from the rabbit central nervous system (CNS) is by probenecid-sensitive transporters at the blood-brain barrier but not at the choroid plexus. The purpose of this study was to determine if other transport mechanisms at the choroid plexus played a significant role in the removal of(More)
