The neuroprotective effects of pentoxifylline (PTX) against lithium-pilocarpine (Li-Pc)-induced status epilepticus (SE) in young rats are described. Animals treated with PTX (0, 20, 40, and 60 mg/kg) before induction of SE were examined for latency to and frequency of SE, behavioral changes, oxidative stress, neurochemical alterations in the hippocampus and(More)
Adenosine is an endogenous neuromodulator which alters neuronal excitability and firing rate. In recent years there has been growing interest in the manipulation of adenosine levels to understand the pathophysiology of various diseases. Dipyridamole (DPM) is a potent adenosine transport inhibitor that causes a several-fold increase in brain adenosine(More)
The present investigation was undertaken to study the neurotoxic effects of beta,beta'-iminodipropionitrile (IDPN) in normal, diabetic and insulin-treated diabetic rats. Sprague-Dawley male rats were divided into five groups: control, IDPN, diabetes, diabetes plus IDPN and diabetes plus insulin plus IDPN. The diabetes was induced with a single i.p.(More)
