Methamphetamine (METH) is a highly addictive CNS stimulant that its long-term use is associated with the loss of neurons in substantia nigra and development of Parkinson’s disease later in life. Common form of METH is Ya-Ba tablet, in which, large portion of caffeine is added to the mass to enhance the stimulatory effect. Previous study demonstrated that(More)
Ya-Ba, a combination of the two potent psychostimulants methamphetamine (METH) and caffeine (CAF), is commonly used by drug abusers in Thailand and neighboring countries. While the neurotoxic effects of METH are well documented, the toxicity of this combination is mostly unknown. This study aimed to elucidate the effects of this particular drug combination(More)
The anti-tumour activities of 1,2-diphenylethane oestrogens (hexoestrol and orthohexoestrol) and anti-oestrogens (metahexoestrol, tetramethylHES, and metatetramethylHES) were studied on the human MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cell lines. On the E2R-positive MCF-7 cell line, all test compounds exhibited a dose-dependent inhibition of cell proliferation,(More)
N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) rocE'1ltors have critical roles in excitatory synaptic transmission, plasticity and excitotoxicity in the CNS. These receptors also have been implicated in many physiological processes such as information processing; learning and memory, and in pathological processes such as hypoxia, degenerative diseases and drug-addicted brain(More)
