Obstruction of the pancreatic duct induces acinar cell deletion followed by duct proliferation and interstitial fibrosis. Apoptosis has been reported to be involved in the induction of acinar cell deletion after pancreatic duct ligation (PDL) in rats, however, the mechanism of pancreatic duct cell proliferation is still unknown. We hypothesized that Bcl-2(More)
We investigated the in vitro free radical scavenging and antioxidant activities of cabergoline as well as its glutathione (GSH)-, catalase-, and superoxide dismutase-activating effects and in vivo neuroprotective properties against 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) intracerebroventricularly (i.c.v.) in mice [1]. In addition, we found that cabergoline prevented the(More)
Repeated injections of methamphetamine (METH) cause degeneration of striatal dopaminergic nerve terminals. In the present study, we examined the effects of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) on METH-induced striatal neurotoxicity in mice. Intraperitoneal injection of IFN-gamma before METH injection significantly prevented METH-induced reduction of striatal(More)
