Brain inflammation is accompanied by transection of axons and death of neurons in the acute lesions of multiple sclerosis. We explored mechanisms of inflammatory damage to neurons in vitro using cocultures of rat embryonal cortical neurons with microglia activated by interferon-gamma (IFNgamma) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Previously, we have demonstrated(More)
Co-localization of activated microglia and damaged neurones seen in brain injury suggests microglia-induced neurodegeneration. Activated microglia release two potential neurotoxins, excitatory amino acids and nitric oxide (NO), but their contribution to mechanisms of injury is poorly understood. Using co-cultures of rat microglia and embryonic cortical(More)
