Ketogenic diet (KD) is an effective treatment for intractable epilepsies. We recently found that KD can prevent seizure and myoclonic jerk in a rat model of post-hypoxic myoclonus. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that KD can prevent the cerebral ischemic neurodegeneration in this animal model. Rats fed a standard diet or KD for 25 days were(More)
In the present study, we evaluated the anti-seizure and anti-myoclonic activity of levetiracetam and brivaracetam in an established rat model of cardiac arrest-induced post-hypoxic myoclonus. We found that brivaracetam (0.3 mg/kg, the minimal effective dose) was more potent than levetiracetam (3 mg/kg, the minimal effective dose) against post-hypoxic(More)
