This study assessed whether creatine could attenuate 3-nitropropionic acid (3NP)-induced neuropathological and behavioral abnormalities that are analogous to those observed in Huntington's disease (HD). Rats were fed diets containing either 1% creatine or normal rat chow for 2 weeks prior to the onset of 3NP administration, and for the duration of the(More)
Quinolinic acid (QA) is an N-methyl-d-aspartate agonist that has been shown to produce neurotoxic effects that mimic certain neurodegenerative diseases when administered to laboratory animals. Intrastriatal injections of QA in rats have been used extensively to produce some of the neuropathological and behavioral deficits that are analogous to Huntington's(More)
