Defective glutamate (Glu) metabolism and glutamate excitotoxicity have been implicated in the pathogenesis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Glycine (Gly), the main inhibitory neurotransmitter, has been shown to potentiate excitatory transmission. In the present study, the levels of Glu and Gly in fasting plasma were measured by high performance(More)
OBJECTIVES Defective glutamate (glu) metabolism and excitotoxicity have been implicated in the pathogenesis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Moreover, glycine (gly) has been shown to potentiate excitatory transmission. The "antiglutamatergic" agent riluzole has been shown to prolong survival in ALS. The aim of the study was to investigate a possible(More)
