Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) accumulates during hypoxic-ischemic brain injury and may mediate neurotoxicity in the immature brain. To determine whether H2O2 causes maturation specific neurotoxicity, primary neuronal cultures were exposed to H2O2 (25, 50, 100 microM) for 5 min or 24 h during in vitro development, and toxicity was assessed. Immature neurons(More)
