OBJECTIVE Microbiota has an important role in human metabolism, nutrition, immunity, and protection against colonization by pathogenic microorganisms. Radiation can harm the beneficial members of the gastrointestinal tract flora. METHODS Our study included 75 rural children aged 4-18 years, who lived in contaminated area exposed to natural environmental(More)
We studied anticonvulsant effects of combined treatment with citicoline, a nootropic substance with neuroregenerative and neuroprotective activities, and valproate, an antiepileptic agent widely used in the treatment of epilepsy, on the model of pentylenetetrazole-induced (75 mg/kg, intraperitoneally) acute generalized convulsions in male Wistar rats.(More)
We studied the dose-dependent effect of preventive intraperitoneal injection of citicoline (cytidine 5′-diphosphocholine) on acute generalized epileptiform activity in C57Bl/6 mice. The duration of citicoline action was also evaluated. Administration of citicoline in doses of 500 and 1000 mg/kg 1 h before treatment with the convulsant agent(More)
The dose-dependent effect of intranasal administration of antibodies to glutamate on acute generalized epileptic activity was studied in C57Bl/6 mice. It was shown that pretreatment with antibodies in doses of 100, 300, and 500 μg/kg 1 h before titration with convulsant pentylenetetrazole had anticonvulsant effects. This treatment was followed by an(More)
The effects of intranasal pretreatment with antibodies against glutamate on focal penicillininduced epileptic activity were studied by recording electrocorticogram in non-anesthetized freely moving male Wistar rats. Anticonvulsant effects of intranasal administration of antiglutamate antibodies (300 μg/kg) 1 h before application of penicillin (30,000 U/ml)(More)
It was shown that the preliminary single i.p. injection of antibodies (AB) to glutamate (GLU) 1,5 hours prior to the first injection pentylenetetrazole (prior to the beginning of kindling) did not have an effect on latency period of appearance and the severity of convulsive reactions in the mice of C57Bl/6. The administrations of AB to GLU at the different(More)
In experiments on mice C57Bl/6 was studied the possibility of production of glutamate, GABA, dopamine and serotonin autoantibodies in the dynamics of development of chronic brain epileptization--pharmacological kindling, induced by daily administration of pentylenetetrazol in subconvulsive dose (30 mg/kg) during 24 days. 14 days after the start of the(More)
Muscimol-stimulated Cl- conductance of synaptoneurosomes from the cerebral cortex of Wistar rats increased during the early stage of pharmacological kindling not inducing the seizure response in animals. Picrotoxin, bicuculline, and pentylenetetrazole potentiated inhibition of muscimol-dependent 36Cl- entry into synaptoneurosomes, which attested to(More)
Experiments on C57Bl/6 mice showed that chronic epileptization of the brain (pharmacological pentylenetetrazole kindling) is accompanied by induction of autoantibodies against glutamate and GABA. Immunohistochemical similarity of antibodies against glutamate and GABA was demonstrated. Study on the model of pentylenetetrazole-induced acute generalized(More)
