No-flow ischemia occurs during cardiac arrest, hemorrhagic shock, liver resection and transplantation. Recovery of blood flow and normal physiological pH, however, irreversibly injures the liver and other tissues. Although the liver has the powerful machinery for mitochondrial quality control, a process called mitophagy, mitochondrial dysfunction and(More)
Immunoreactive corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) and growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) are present in the plasma of the brain dead patients. These hypothalamic hormones may reflect some residual brain function after brain death. To examine the hypothalamic function, insulin-induced hypoglycemia and arginine infusion were performed in brain dead(More)
Since it had been demonstrated that L5418 has an anti-convulsant effect with no relation to its anti-inflammatory properties, comparative studies were carried out with the use of currently available anti-convulsant agents as controls. L-5418 inhibited tonic convulsions induced by maximal electroshock and strychinine in mice and prevented animals from the(More)
L-5418 has an anti-convulsant effect which is similar to that of diphenylhydantoin. The effects of L-5418 on EEG activity in rabbits with acute and chronic implantation of electrodes were studied in comparison with those of currently available anti-convulsants. Intravenous administration of L-5418 increased a slow-wave sleep pattern in the spontaneous EEG,(More)
In a previous paper, we reported that PZ-177 had potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities. In the present work, acute toxicity and action of PZ-177 on the central nervous system were tested in comparison with PZ-222, one of metabolites of PZ-177, and mepirizole. Acute toxicity of PZ-177 was slightly less than that of aminopyrine and the same as(More)
