BACKGROUND Kainic acid (KA)-induced status epilepticus (SE) was involved with release of free radicals. Sesamin is a well-known antioxidant from sesame seeds and it scavenges free radicals in several brain injury models. However the neuroprotective mechanism of sesamin to KA-induced seizure has not been studied. METHODS Rodents (male FVB mice and(More)
OBJECTIVES Hypoxia induces cellular oxidative stress that is associated with neurodegenerative diseases. Here, the protective effects of ferulic acid (FA) on hypoxia-induced neurotoxicity in PC12 cells were evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS We investigated the effect of FA on PC12 cells subjected to hypoxia stress, in vitro. RESULTS FA increased cell(More)
