The neuroprotective effects of a selective Group II metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) agonist, LY379268, have been evaluated against global and focal cerebral ischaemia. Loss of CA1 hippocampal neurones following 5 min bilateral occlusion of the carotid artery (BCAO) in the gerbil was almost completely prevented by LY379268 (10 mg/kg, i.p.) given 30(More)
In the present studies we have investigated the effects of a range of glycine site antagonists of the N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in the gerbil model of global cerebral ischaemia. The compounds tested were (+)-3-amino-1-hydroxy-2-pyrrolidone (HA 966, 15 mg/kg), 7-chloro-4-hydroxy-3-(3-phenoxy)phenyl-2(H)-quinolinone) (L-701,324, 40 mg/kg),(More)
